Litter Size

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

How many baby Green acouchis are in a litter?

A Green acouchi (Myoprocta pratti) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 99 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 79 grams (0.17 lbs) and measure 3 cm (0′ 2″). They are a member of the Dasyproctidae family (genus: Myoprocta). An adult Green acouchi grows up to a size of 10.9 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 green acouchi (Myoprocta pratti) is a species of rodent in the acouchi genus, part of the family Dasyproctidae, from South America. Its distribution is in western Amazonia, west of the Rios Negro and Madeira, in northwestern Brazil, northeastern Peru, eastern Ecuador, southeastern Colombia, and southern Venezuela. There is substantial variation within this range, and the Green Acouchi, as currently recognized, may contain more than one species. Because the application of the scientific name acouchy, currently in use for the Red Acouchi, has historically been disputed, the name Myoprocta acouchy has sometimes been used for this species instead of Myoprocta pratti. The species is named for Antwerp Edgar Pratt who was a British naturalist.
