Mammals

There are over 5,500 different species of mammals. Mammals live on land, underground, in the air, or in fresh or salt water, but despite their diverse habitats, there are several things that mammals have in common: All mammals are vertebrates, meaning they have a backbone, they all make their own body heat, they all produce milk for their young, and they all have some type of hair or fur. Mammals are found in every part of the world and are an incredibly diverse group of animals.

Boulder Ridge Wild Animal Park has over 460 mammals representing 64 different species.
