How many baby Moonrats are in a litter?

A Moonrat (Echinosorex gymnura) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.With 2 litters per year, that sums up to a yearly offspring of 2 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 37 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 14 grams (0.03 lbs) and measure 8 cm (0′ 4″). They are a member of the Erinaceidae family (genus: Echinosorex). An adult Moonrat grows up to a size of 32.7 cm (1′ 1″).

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.
