Get closer to your favourite mammals

The earth is home to approximately 5,000 different species of mammals — including you.

From very tiny rodents to very, VERY large elephants, mammals come in all shapes and sizes. They have great eyesight, a keen sense of smell and highly developed brains. They're also warm-blooded, which helps them remain active when it’s cold, and they can live on land, in the air, or under the sea.

What makes mammals different from other animals?

  • They have three middle ear bones
  • They have hair
  • They produce milk
