How many baby Speke’s gazelles are in a litter?

A Speke’s gazelle (Gazella spekei) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 178 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 1.25 kg (2.76 lbs) and measure 4.6 cm (0′ 2″). They are a member of the Bovidae family (genus: Gazella). An adult Speke’s gazelle grows up to a size of 88.5 cm (2′ 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 Speke’s gazelle (Gazella spekei) is the smallest of the gazelle species. It is confined to the Horn of Africa, where it inhabits stony brush, grass steppes, and semideserts. This species has been sometimes regarded as a subspecies of the Dorcas gazelle, though this is now widely disregarded. Severe habitat fragmentation means it is now impossible to assess the natural migratory or nomadic patterns of G. spekei. Its numbers are under threat, and despite an increase in population, the IUCN in 2007 announced its status had changed from vulnerable to endangered. A captive population is maintained, and the wild population exists in the lower tens of thousands. As of 2008, this gazelle is classified as endangered under the IUCN Red List.Speke’s gazelle is named after John Hanning Speke, an English explorer of Central Africa.
