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

How many baby Gerenuks are in a litter?

A Gerenuk (Litocranius walleri) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 204 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 1 grams (0 lbs) and measure 91.3 cm (3′ 0″). They are a member of the Bovidae family (genus: Litocranius). An adult Gerenuk grows up to a size of 1.5 meter (5′ 0″).

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 Gerenuk is 1

The gerenuk (; Somali: garanuug; Litocranius walleri), also known as the giraffe gazelle, is a long-necked antelope found in the Horn of Africa and the drier parts of East Africa. The sole member of the genus Litocranius, the gerenuk was first described by the naturalist Victor Brooke in 1879. It is characterised by its long, slender neck and limbs. The antelope is 80–105 centimetres (31–41 in) tall, and weighs between 28 and 52 kilograms (62 and 115 lb). Two types of colouration are clearly visible on the smooth coat: the reddish brown back or the “saddle”, and the lighter flanks, fawn to buff. The horns, present only on males, are lyre-shaped. Curving backward then slightly forward, these measure 25–44 centimetres (9.8–17.3 in).
