How many baby Tapetis are in a litter?

A Tapeti (Sylvilagus brasiliensis) usually gives birth to around 1 babies.With 4 litters per year, that sums up to a yearly offspring of 4 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 42 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 27 grams (0.06 lbs) and measure 8 cm (0′ 4″). They are a member of the Leporidae family (genus: Sylvilagus). An adult Tapeti grows up to a size of 36.3 cm (1′ 3″).

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.
