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

How many baby Iberian ibexs are in a litter?

A Iberian ibex (Capra pyrenaica) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 150 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 2.78 kg (6.13 lbs) and measure 37.5 cm (1′ 3″). They are a member of the Bovidae family (genus: Capra). An adult Iberian ibex grows up to a size of 1.2 meter (4′ 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 Iberian ibex is 1

The Iberian ibex, Spanish ibex, Spanish wild goat, or Iberian wild goat (Capra pyrenaica) is a species of ibex with four subspecies. Of these, two can still be found on the Iberian Peninsula, but the remaining two are now extinct. The Portuguese subspecies became extinct in 1892 and the Pyrenean subspecies became extinct in 2000. An ongoing project to clone to the Pyrenean subspecies resulted in one clone being born alive in July 2003. This is the first taxon to become “un-extinct”, although the clone died a few minutes after birth due to physical defects in lungs.
