1. The list of recently extinct reptiles is from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_recently_extinct_reptiles
2. One extinct
subspecies weight is not included because this subspecies is just a variation of an extant species.
3. Weight information for these
reptiles was not available in all references found.
a. Where an animal of comparable size was mentioned and a weight estimate was
available for that animal, the weight estimate for the comparable animal was used as indicated by "a" in this table.
b. When length
information was available in the references, then weights of reptiles of the same type and approximate size were used as indicated
by "g" in the table.
c. When no length information was available, then weights were estimated based on the type of reptile only as
indicated by “h” in the table.
4. The weight of the giant turtles are quite variable based on age among other factors.
