Litter Size

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

How many baby Takins are in a litter?

A Takin (Budorcas taxicolor) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 235 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 Bovidae family (genus: Budorcas). An adult Takin grows up to a size of 1.74 meter (5′ 9″).

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 Takin is 1

The takin (; Budorcas taxicolor; Tibetan: ར་རྒྱ་, Wylie: ra rgya), also called cattle chamois or gnu goat, is a large species of ungulate of the subfamily Caprinae found in the eastern Himalayas. The four subspecies are the Mishmi takin (B. t. taxicolor), the golden takin (B. t. bedfordi), the Tibetan (or Sichuan) takin (B. t. tibetana), and the Bhutan takin (B. t. whitei). Whilst the takin has in the past been placed together with the muskox in the tribe Ovibovini, more recent mitochondrial research shows a closer relationship to Ovis (sheep). Its physical similarity to the muskox is therefore an example of convergent evolution. The takin is the national animal of Bhutan.
