Bengal cats, a hybrid between the Asian Leopard Cat and various domestic breeds, are medium to large-sized cats that share characteristics from both sides of the gene pool.
As their wild ancestors were leaner and more muscular than typical housecats, Bengals can sometimes appear larger than they are; fully grown Bengals typically weigh 8 to 15 pounds. Bengals generally reach full height and weight by 1 1/2 years old, which marks when they achieve sexual maturity. Interestingly, the size will differ from F1 to F5 generations, and understandably, the price will too.
Predicting how much your Bengal will weigh is difficult. Oddly It is thought that those with domestic cat ancestry tend to be larger and heavier cats; on average, roughly one-third of their ancestry will come from domestic cats, while Asian Leopard Cat ancestry will comprise up to 70 per cent.
