Litter Size

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

How many baby Pampas cats are in a litter?

A Pampas cat (Oncifelis colocolo) usually gives birth to around 2 babies.

Upon birth, they weight 18.36 kg (40.48 lbs) and measure 5.7 cm (0′ 3″). They are a member of the Felidae family (genus: Oncifelis). An adult Pampas cat grows up to a size of 61.6 cm (2′ 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.

The average litter size of a Pampas cat is 2

The Pampas cat (Leopardus colocola) is a small wild cat native to South America. It is listed as Near Threatened on the IUCN Red List as habitat conversion and destruction may cause the population to decline in the future.It is also known as Pantanal cat and colocolo in parts of its range. It is named after the Pampas, but occurs in grassland, shrubland, and dry forest at elevations up to 5,000 m (16,000 ft).There was a proposal to divide Pampas cat into three distinct species, based primarily on differences in pelage colour/pattern and cranial measurements. Accordingly, three species were recognised in the 2005 edition of Mammal Species of the World: the colocolo (L. colocolo), the Pantanal cat (L. braccatus), and the Pampas cat (L. pajeros) with a more restricted definition. This split at species level was not supported by subsequent phylogeographic analysis, although some geographical substructure was recognised, and some authorities continue to recognise the Pampas cat as a single species. In the revision of felid taxonomy by the Cat Specialist Group, the Pampas cat is recognised as a single species with seven subspecies.
