How many baby Pygmy rabbits are in a litter?

A Pygmy rabbit (Brachylagus idahoensis) usually gives birth to around 5 babies.With 1 litters per year, that sums up to a yearly offspring of 5 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 19 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 5.88 kg (12.96 lbs) and measure 7.2 cm (0′ 3″). They are a member of the Leporidae family (genus: Brachylagus). An adult Pygmy rabbit grows up to a size of 26.5 cm (0′ 11″).

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 pygmy rabbit (Brachylagus idahoensis) is a North American rabbit, and is one of only two rabbit species in America to dig its own burrow. The pygmy rabbit differs significantly from species within either the Lepus (hare) or Sylvilagus (cottontail) genera and is generally considered to be within the monotypic genus Brachylagus. One isolated population, the Columbia Basin pygmy rabbit, is listed as an endangered species by the U.S. Federal government, though the International Union for Conservation of Nature lists the species as lower risk.The pygmy rabbit is the world’s smallest leporid, which means adult weights from 375 to about 500 grams (0.827 to about 1.102 lb), and a body length from 23.5 to 29.5 centimeters (9.3 to 11.6 in); females are slightly larger than males. The pygmy rabbit is distinguishable from other leporids by its small size, short ears, gray color, small hind legs, and lack of whit fuzzy fur
