How many baby Kinkajous are in a litter?

A Kinkajou (Potos flavus) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.With 1 litters per year, that sums up to a yearly offspring of 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 116 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 171 grams (0.38 lbs) and measure 18.3 cm (0′ 8″). They are a member of the Procyonidae family (genus: Potos). An adult Kinkajou grows up to a size of 51 cm (1′ 9″).

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 kinkajou ( KING-kÉ™-joo) (Potos flavus) is a tropical rainforest mammal of the family Procyonidae related to olingos, coatis, raccoons, and the ringtail and cacomistle. It is the only member of the genus Potos and is also known as the “honey bear” (a name that it shares with the unrelated sun bear). Kinkajous are arboreal, a lifestyle they evolved independently; they are not closely related to any other tree-dwelling mammal group (primates, some mustelids, etc.). Native to Central America and South America, this mostly frugivorous mammal is not an endangered species, though it is seldom seen by people because of its strict nocturnal habits. However, they are hunted for the pet trade, for their fur (to make wallets and horse saddles) and for their meat. The species has been included in Appendix III of CITES by Honduras, which means that exports from Honduras require an export permit and exports from other countries require a certificate of origin or re-export. They may live up to 40 years in captivity.
