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.


Mammal or not
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



Mammal or not

What do all mammals have?

  • Mammary Glands

  • Live Birth

  • Hair

  • Mammary Glands & Hair


Mammal or not

Good try!

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

Back


Mammal or not

Good try!

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

Back


Mammal or not

Good try!

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

Back


Mammal or not

Great job!!

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

Next



Mammal or not

Good job!!

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

Next


Mammal or not

Try again!

What is a mouse?

Back


Mammal or not

What type of mammal is this?

  • Marsupial

  • Monotreme

  • Placental


Mammal or not

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


Mammal or not

Good try!

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

Back


Mammal or not

Oops!

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

Back


Mammal or not

What type of placental mammal is a horse?

  • Insect-eater

  • Hoofed

  • Carnivore

  • Toothless


Mammal or not

Oops!

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

Back


Mammal or not

Great job!

Horses have two toes fused together to make a hoof.

Next


Mammal or not

Good try!

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

Back


Mammal or not

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


Mammal or not

What type of mammal are you?

  • Carnivore

  • Primate

  • Both


Mammal or not

Try again!

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

Back


Mammal or not

Great!

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

Next


Mammal or not

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


Mammal or not

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

    Insect-eaters Hoofed Toothless

Great job!
