How many babies does a Visayan warty pig have at once? (litter size)

How many baby Visayan warty pigs are in a litter?

A Visayan warty pig (Sus cebifrons) usually gives birth to around 4 babies.With 1 litters per year, that sums up to a yearly offspring of 4 babies.

Each of those little ones spend around 125 days as a fetus before they are released into the wild. Upon birth, they weight 30 grams (0.07 lbs) and measure 1.4 cm (0′ 1″). They are a member of the Suidae family (genus: Sus). An adult Visayan warty pig grows up to a size of 1.35 meter (4′ 6″).

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 Visayan warty pig (Sus cebifrons) is a critically endangered species in the pig genus (Sus). It is endemic to six of the Visayan Islands (Cebu, Negros, Panay, Masbate, Guimaras, and Siquijor) in the central Philippines. It is known by many names in the region (depending on the island and linguistic group) with most translating into ‘wild pig’: baboy ihalas (‘wild pig’ in Cebuano and Hiligaynon), baboy talonon (‘forest pig’ in Hiligaynon), and baboy sulop (‘dark pig’ in Cebuano)The Visayan warty pig is critically endangered due to habitat loss and hunting. It is believed to be extinct in four of the islands in its original native range, with only small surviving populations in Negros and Panay. Due to the small numbers of remaining Visayan warty pigs in the wild, little is known of their behaviors or characteristics outside of captivity. In 2012 the Negros Interior Biodiversity Expedition undertook camera trapping in the Northern Negros Natural Park and gained the first photos taken in the wild of the Visayan warty pig.
