Litter Size

How many babies does a Bronze quoll have at once? (litter size)

How many baby Bronze quolls are in a litter?

A Bronze quoll (Dasyurus spartacus) usually gives birth to around 6 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 19 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 96 grams (0.21 lbs) and measure 0.7 cm (0′ 1″). They are a member of the Dasyuridae family (genus: Dasyurus). An adult Bronze quoll grows up to a size of 35.6 cm (1′ 3″).

To have a reference: Humans obviously usually have a litter size of one ;). Their babies are in the womb of their mother for 280 days (40 weeks) and reach an average size of 1.65m (5′ 5″). They weight in at 62 kg (137 lbs), which is obviously highly individual, and reach an average age of 75 years.

The average litter size of a Bronze quoll is 6

The bronze quoll (Dasyurus spartacus) is a species of quoll found only in the Trans-Fly savanna and grasslands of New Guinea and West Papua. It was discovered in the early 1970s when five specimens were collected, but only described in 1987 when Dr. Stephen Van Dyck of the Queensland Museum examined them and recognised their distinctness. As of February 2013 there are twelve public museum specimens, 8 from traps and 4 from local hunters. It is the largest surviving marsupial carnivore of New Guinea.Very little is known of it; it was previously thought to be an outlying population of the western quoll (Dasyurus geoffroii).
