What is the average size of a Bengal cat?

The Bengal cat is considered a large boned cat (Legacy of the Cat - Gloria Stephens). Gloria says that males weigh from ten to eighteen pounds while females are a bit smaller.
Dr. Fogle (Encyclopedia of the Cat) says that the Bengal cat weighs between 5.5 to 10 kg or 12-22 lbs.
On my page that compares the weights of domestic cat breeds I say that this cat weighs from about 9 to about 13.5 pounds.
Weights will vary considerably between individual cats. The average size of a Bengal cat will be very similar to the size of a slightly large domestic cat.
