Mammals, like humans, are warm-blooded vertebrates with a well-developed brain, hair covering their body and the ability to feed their young milk. They also all breathe using their lungs, even if they live in the sea such as Dolphins, Otters and Sea Lions. Depending on what they eat, Mammals can be categories into different groups – Herbivores (plant-eating animals), Carnivores (meat-eating animals) and Omnivores (those that eat both).


Over 50% of all known mammals have seen a decrease in their population, of which 20% are close to extinction. To help protect our mammals, never hunt animals in the wild, reduce your carbon footprint to stop pollution and reduce your water waste.
