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

How many baby Geladas are in a litter?

A Gelada (Theropithecus gelada) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 178 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 465 grams (1.03 lbs) and measure 36.8 cm (1′ 3″). They are a member of the Cercopithecidae family (genus: Theropithecus). An adult Gelada grows up to a size of 62 cm (2′ 1″).

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 Gelada is 1

The gelada (Theropithecus gelada, Amharic: ጭላዳ, romanized: č̣əlada), sometimes called the bleeding-heart monkey or the gelada “baboon”, is a species of Old World monkey found only in the Ethiopian Highlands, with large populations in the Semien Mountains. Geladas are actually not baboons (baboons are all taxonomic members of the genus Papio) but the only living members of the genus Theropithecus. Theropithecus is derived from the Greek root words for “beast-ape”. Like its close relatives the baboons (genus Papio), it is largely terrestrial, spending much of its time foraging in grasslands.
