This report outlines a comparison of renal weight and volume and selected skeletal parameters to sex in 22 adult male and 156 adult female rhesus macaques. Means and standard deviations for kidney weight and volume, body weight, and radiographic measurements for both males and females are reported. Ninety-five percent confidence intervals and P-values for the mean differences between the sexes for these parameters were also compiled. Male monkeys were larger, but had kidneys of similar size to those of the females. Joint distributions of the radiographic measurements of the first lumbar vertebra and the skull showed that males were larger in both measurements. The distributions of these parameters were clearly separate in males and females, while joint distributions of kidney weight and volume for males and females overlapped almost completely. We found that, regardless of age, sex, weight, or skeletal size, all normal adult rhesus monkeys generally have similar-sized kidneys.
