How Much Does A Skeleton Weigh?

Question

I was at a Halloween party and he was wearing a skeleton outfit. And I wondered what the average weight of a male skeleton is?
Dave, Orpington

 

Answer

Name: Ian, Effingham
Qualification: Medical school
Answer: Your skeleton weighs about 12-15% of your body weight. If you're 14st, your skeleton will weigh around 2st.
(James O'Brien: But what happens if I'm 14st now and then go on an eating binge and put on 6st? My skeleton won't gain weight. You can't use a percentage.)
