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

How many baby Grivets are in a litter?

A Grivet (Chlorocebus aethiops) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 82 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 173 grams (0.38 lbs) and measure 7.6 cm (0′ 3″). They are a member of the Cercopithecidae family (genus: Chlorocebus). An adult Grivet grows up to a size of 56 cm (1′ 11″).

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 Grivet is 1

The grivet (Chlorocebus aethiops), also known as African green monkey and savannah monkey is an Old World monkey with long white tufts of hair along the sides of the face. Some authorities consider this and all of the members of the genus Chlorocebus to be a single species, Cercopithecus aethiops. As here defined, the grivet is restricted to Ethiopia, Sudan, Djibouti and Eritrea. In the southern part of its range, it comes into contact with the closely related vervet monkey (C. pygerythrus) and Bale Mountains vervet (C. djamdjamensis). Hybridization between them is possible, and may present a threat to the vulnerable Bale Mountains vervet. Unlike that species, the grivet is common and rated as Least Concern by the IUCN.
