what makes a mammal
What Makes a Mammal?

All mammals have two things in common:

  • Mammary Glands
  • Hair
mammary glands
Mammary Glands

All mammal mothers have mammary glands that make milk for their babies to drink.

slide5
Hair

All mammals have hair, even if they only have a little bit.

what else do mammals have
What else do mammals have?

Mammals also share these traits with other animals:

  • Live Birth
  • Vertebrae
  • Warm-blooded
live birth
Live Birth

Mammals carry their babies inside while the baby grows.

After the baby has developed, the mother gives “live birth,” which means the baby moves and has a heartbeat when it’s born.

vertebrae
Vertebrae

Mammals are all vertebrates, which means they all have a backbone, or vertebrae.

warm blooded
Warm-blooded

Mammals can control their own body temperature.

If they’re too hot, they sweat

If they’re too cold, they shiver to keep warm

This is called being warm-blooded.

what are the different types of mammals
What are the different types of mammals?
  • Monotremes
  • Marsupials
  • Placental
monotremes
Monotremes

Monotremes are mammals that lay eggs.

Examples:

Duck-billed Platypus

Spiny Anteater

marsupials
Marsupials

Marsupials give birth to immature babies.

The babies are kept in the mother’s pouch until they’re big enough to survive by themselves.

Examples:

Kangaroo

Koala

placental
Placental

Placental mammals are mammals that get everything they need while growing from a placenta, an organ the mother has.

The placenta gives the growing babies food and oxygen.

there are 9 different types of placental mammals
There are 9 different types of Placental Mammals

flying
Flying

The only flying mammal is the bat.

Bats:

  • Sleep during the day
  • Eat insects and fruit

Quiz

Types

carnivores
Carnivores

Dogs, tigers, raccoons, and otters are all carnivores.

Carnivore mammals are at the top of the food chain and eat meat.

They have sharp teeth and are usually very fast.

Quiz

Types

rodents
Rodents

Mice, rats, squirrels, and chipmunks are all rodents.

Rodents have oversized front teeth and chew on anything they can get their paws on!

Types

Quiz

insect eaters
Insect-Eaters

Hedgehogs, moles, and shrews are all this type of mammal.

Insect-eaters are very similar to rodents – can you figure out how they’re different?

That’s right! It’s because insect-eaters eat only insects, and rodents eat mostly grain.

Quiz

Types

hoofed
Hoofed

Cows, giraffes, hippos, horses, pigs, deer, camels, and sheep are all hoofed mammals.

Hoofed mammals have toes that are hard and stuck together, called hooves.

Hoofed mammals either have an odd number or even number of toes.

Which kind is this hoofed mammal shown, odd or even?

Quiz

Types

trunked
Trunked

The only trunked mammal is the elephant.

The elephant’s trunk is a stretched out nose and mouth.

Have you ever fed an elephant a peanut at the circus or zoo? They use their long trunk to grab the peanut from your hand!

Quiz

Types

marine
Marine

Dolphins and whales are marine mammals.

Marine mammals live in the water, but they have lungs and breathe air like you and me. That’s why sometimes you see them go to the surface of the water – so they can breathe!

Dolphins and whales do have hair all over their bodies, but it’s not very thick and hard to see, even if you get close to them at the zoo.

Can you think of any famous marine mammals from movies or stories?

Types

Quiz

toothless
Toothless

Sloths, armadillos, and anteaters are toothless mammals.

Toothless mammals have no front teeth.

Can you think of some ways toothless mammals can eat without having front teeth?

Types

Quiz

primates
Primates

Primates have opposable thumbs and flexible fingers.

Look at your hand. See your thumb and fingers, how you can hold the mouse you’re using for this project?

That’s using your opposable thumb and flexible fingers!

YOU are a primate. Can you think of other mammals that are primates like you?

Quiz

slide25

What do all mammals have?

  • Mammary Glands
  • Live Birth
  • Hair
  • Mammary Glands & Hair
slide26

Good try!

Mammals do have mammary glands, but they also have one other thing in common with each other.

Back

slide27

Good try!

Some mammals do give live birth, but there are other things they all have in common.

Back

slide28

Good try!

Mammals do all have hair, but they also have one other thing in common with each other.

Back

slide29

Great job!!

All mammals have mammary glands AND hair all over their bodies.

Next

slide31

Good job!!

A mouse is a rodent, which is a placental mammal.

Next

slide32

Try again!

What is a mouse?

Back

slide33

What type of mammal is this?

  • Marsupial
  • Monotreme
  • Placental
slide34

Great job!

A koala is a marsupial. Mother koalas have a pouch that they keep their babies in until the babies can take care of themselves.

Next

slide35

Good try!

Monotremes are animals like the duck-billed platypus. They lay eggs.

Back

slide36

Oops!

Koalas have pouches they keep their babies in until the babies can take care of themselves. What type of mammal does this?

Back

slide37

What type of placental mammal is a horse?

  • Insect-eater
  • Hoofed
  • Carnivore
  • Toothless
slide38

Oops!

Insect-eaters are pretty small and they only eat insects. Horses eat things like hay and apples.

Back

slide39

Great job!

Horses have two toes fused together to make a hoof.

Next

slide40

Good try!

Horses eat hay and fruit. They can travel far distances without their feet getting tired.

Back

slide41

Oops!

When you go for a ride on a horse, you put a bit between its teeth so you can make it go where you want.

Back

slide42

What type of mammal are you?

  • Carnivore
  • Primate
  • Both
slide43

Try again!

You may eat meat, but there’s a type of mammal you fit better!

Back

slide44

Great!

Humans have opposable thumbs and flexible fingers, just like monkeys and chimpanzees.

Next

slide45

Sorry!

You may enjoy a steak every once and awhile, and you might like swinging from trees, but you fit one of the choices better!

Back

slide46

You did it!!

Good job!!

what did you learn today
What did you learn today?

Mammals all have:

  • Hair
  • Mammary glands

What are the three different types of mammals?

  • Monotremes – the egg-layers
  • Marsupials – the pouched
  • Placental – the ones that develop inside their mother

What are the different types of placental mammals?

Flying Primates Carnivores

Rodents Marine Trunked

Great job!
