Litter Size

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

How many baby Moor macaques are in a litter?

A Moor macaque (Macaca maura) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 167 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 389 grams (0.86 lbs) and measure 1.2 meter (4′ 0″). They are a member of the Cercopithecidae family (genus: Macaca). An adult Moor macaque grows up to a size of 66 cm (2′ 2″).

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 Moor macaque is 1

The moor macaque (Macaca maura) is a macaque with brown/black body fur with a pale rump patch and pink bare skin on the rump. It is about 50–58.5 cm long, and eats figs, bamboo seeds, buds, sprouts, invertebrates and cereals in tropical rainforests. It is sometimes called “dog-ape” because of its dog-like muzzle, although it is no more closely related to apes than any other Old World monkey is. It is endemic to the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia.The moor macaque is threatened mostly due to habitat loss from an expanding human population and deforestation to increase agricultural land area. The population is estimated to have decreased from 56,000 to under 10,000 from 1983 to 1994.In 1992, Supriatna et al. (1992) conducted an extensive survey and found only 3,000–5,000 individuals (2,500 mature) of the species. The survey estimated densities to be 25–50 individuals/km2 (18.7SD). Because several Sulawesi macaque species are endangered, information on ecology and behaviour is essential and conservation management plans are being conducted.
