Litter Size

How many babies does a Florida mouse have at once? (litter size)

How many baby Florida mouses are in a litter?

A Florida mouse (Podomys floridanus) usually gives birth to around 2 babies.

Upon birth, they weight 2 grams (0 lbs) and measure 2 cm (0′ 1″). They are a member of the Muridae family (genus: Podomys). An adult Florida mouse grows up to a size of 10.4 cm (0′ 5″).

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 Florida mouse (Podomys floridanus) is a species of rodent in the family Cricetidae. It is the only species in the genus Podomys, which is the only mammal genus endemic to Florida. The Florida mouse (also known as the big-eared deermouse, the Florida deermouse, and the gopher mouse) is found only in a limited area in central peninsular Florida and in one small area in the Florida panhandle. The mouse inhabits some of Florida’s hottest and driest areas in the high pinelands, sandhills, flatlands, and coastal scrub.The mouse is an omnivore, measures 195 mm (7.7 in) in total length, has relatively large ears, and displays brown to orange upperparts and white underparts. The mouse breeds throughout the year, and raises its two or three young per litter in the nesting chambers and passages it constructs in the burrow of the gopher tortoise (Gopherus polyphemus). Real estate development and a decline in the gopher tortoise population threaten the mouse’s future. The species is listed as Vulnerable by the IUCN.
