How many babies does a Roosevelt’s muntjac have at once? (litter size)

How many baby Roosevelt’s muntjacs are in a litter?

A Roosevelt’s muntjac (Muntiacus rooseveltorum) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 212 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 3 grams (0.01 lbs) and measure 6 cm (0′ 3″). They are a member of the Cervidae family (genus: Muntiacus). An adult Roosevelt’s muntjac grows up to a size of 10.4 cm (0′ 5″).

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 Roosevelt's muntjac is 1

A single specimen of the Roosevelt’s muntjac or Roosevelt’s barking deer (Muntiacus rooseveltorum) was presented to the Field Museum in 1929 following the Kelley-Roosevelts expedition organized by Theodore (Jnr) and Kermit Roosevelt. The specimen is slightly smaller than the common muntjac and DNA testing has shown it to be distinct from recently discovered muntjac species. It is a subspecies of Fea’s muntjac, whose home range is mountains further northwest separated by lower land. However, without further evidence, the exact position of Roosevelt’s muntjac cannot be stated. Berlin Zoo supposedly held this species between 1961 and 1972 (following an import from Northern Vietnam) but it could have been an Indian muntjac subspecies annamensis.Roosevelt’s muntjac was believed to have been extinct since 1929. However, there have been several recent claims to have rediscovered the species, from evidence including skulls owned by villagers in the Truong Son (Annamite) mountains of northern Laos and far northwestern Vietnam. More recently, photographs from a camera trap at Xuan Lien Nature Reserve in Vietnam appear to have identified two individuals.
