Litter Size

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

How many baby Tammar wallabys are in a litter?

A Tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.With 1 litters per year, that sums up to a yearly offspring of 1 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 29 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 4 grams (0.01 lbs) and measure 2.6 cm (0′ 2″). They are a member of the Macropodidae family (genus: Macropus). An adult Tammar wallaby grows up to a size of 64.6 cm (2′ 2″).

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 tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii), also known as the dama wallaby or darma wallaby, is a small macropod native to South and Western Australia. Though its geographical range has been severely reduced since European colonization, the tammar remains common within its reduced range and is listed as “Least Concern” by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN). It has been introduced to New Zealand and reintroduced to some areas of Australia where it had been previously eradicated. Skull differences distinguish tammars from Western Australia, Kangaroo Island, and mainland South Australia, making them distinct population groups or possibly different subspecies.The tammar is among the smallest of the wallabies in the genus Macropus. Its coat color is largely grey. The tammar has several notable adaptations, including the ability to retain energy while hopping, color vision, and the ability to drink seawater. A nocturnal species, it spends nighttime in grassland habitat and daytime in shrubland. It is also very gregarious and has a seasonal, promiscuous mating pattern. A female tammar can nurse a joey in her pouch while keeping an embryo in her uterus. The tammar is a model species for research on marsupials, and on mammals in general. It is one of many organisms to have had its genome sequenced.
