UCMP Hall of Mammals
Those hairy, milk-producing, warm-blooded animals that you have seen all of your life are mammals. The quagga, itself a mammal, will be your host here in the Hall of Mammals at the University of California Museum of Paleontology . The quagga, who is seen here reading about mammalian phylogeny, is a recently extinct mammal generally related to horses and zebras. It was a yellowish-brown zebra with stripes only on its head, neck and forebody. The quagga was native to desert areas of the African continient until it was exterminated in the 1880's. As an extinct animal, the quagga is well qualified to act as a tour guide for a paleontological museum. As an animal that was living during historical times, the quagga is symbolic of the continuity between the living and extinct. The quagga is (or was) a placental mammal , a group also called Eutheria by scientists. Placental mammals are one of three major groups of living mammals. Marsupials , or Metatheria, form another. This group includes all of the pouched animals, such as oppossums, kangaroos, and Tasmanian devils. The third group, the monotremes , are far less diverse and less well known. They are warm-blooded, have hair, and produce milk just like other mammals, but they lay eggs and do not give live birth like marsupials and placentals. A fourth major group, the

    USNM Mammal Collection
    Chrotopterus auritus The National Museum of Natural History houses one of the most important collections of mammals in the world. The collection is referenced in the scientific literature by the acronym USNM, derived from the former name United States National Museum. With roughly 580,000 voucher specimens, it is by far the world's largest, nearly twice the size of the next largest mammal collections. The taxonomic and geographic scope of the USNM mammal collection spans the globe, with especially strong representation from North America, Central America, northern South America, Africa, and southeast Asia. The research value of this collection to mammalogists is evidenced by the 3500 primary type specimens preserved, a number exceeded only by The Natural History Museum, London. The USNM mammal collection includes many historically important specimens. The oldest originated from the activities of the U.S. Exploring Expedition, dating from 1838-1842, and the personal collection of Spencer Fullerton Baird (the second Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution), also from the 1840s.

    Mammals are a group of animals with backbones, bodies covered by hair, nurse their young with milk, and have a unique jaw articulation. Mammals are also the group of animals to which humans belong. Belize has approximately 145 mammal species living within its boundaries. Mammals exist within all the different habitats of Belize, from the manatee and dolphins of the coastal zone, to the 5 different species of wildcat which live deep within the rainforests of the Maya Mountains. The rainforest mammals of Belize tend to be very secretive and mostly nocturnal. This makes them extremely difficult to see. They usually see, hear, smell, or feel you long before you them. Rainforest mammals do not stand out in the open for easy viewing, but instead climb through the canopy or scurry over the forest floor well ahead of you. That is one reason the Belize Zoo is such a special place. Here you can see many of the rainforest species of Belize easily. A visit to the zoo is the best way to get an introduction to the animals of Belize, and to understand why it is important to protect the habitats that sustain them. We hope this website will be the next best thing to visiting us in person.

    Maintaining the health of the Navy's marine mammals is central to the Navy Marine Mammal Program's mission and focus. A full-time staff of veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and biologists ensures that necessary care and management processes are in place to provide for all the health needs of the animals. A veterinarian and a veterinary technician are on call around the clock, 7 days a week. The NMMP is in strict compliance with all statutory requirements, DoD requirements, and federal laws regarding the proper care of the animals.
    A veterinarian gives a sea lion a checkup. The primary focus of the health care program is to keep the marine mammals healthy and fit for duty. Cutting-edge marine mammal health care techniques and technologies are actively evaluated and developed. Research to support the health of the animals incorporates fields such as immunology, virology, epidemiology, microbiology, toxicology, and vaccination development. In this regard, the Navy continues its time-honored tradition of being an important National resource for the study of marine mammal nutrition, medicine, physiology, and ecology.
    The NMMP is accredited by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALAC). AAALAC is a nonprofit non-regulatory organization that promotes high standards of animal care and use, improves laboratory animal well-being, and enhances life sciences research through accreditation. It is a non-governmental independent organization that monitors and ensures strict animal care standards throughout the world. Membership is voluntary so it shows a level of care that is exceptional and over and above what is required by law. It includes a triennial site visit and a comprehensive review of all procedures and performance for the care and handing of the animals. The 2002 re-accreditation letter to the NMMP noted: "The Council commends you and your staff for providing and maintaining an excellent program of laboratory animal care and use."

    There are about 5,000 species of living mammals. They are divided into three subclasses and about 26 orders (there is no consensus among biologists). Unlike other animals, mammals have body hair, have 3 middle ear bones (the malleus, incus, and stapes), and nourish their young with milk that females produce in modified sweat glands that are called mammary glands. For more information on mammals, click on the links below: MARSUPIALS Marsupials are mammals whose young are born very immature. Most female marsupials have pouches. MONOTREMES Monotremes are primitive, egg-laying mammals. Spiny anteaters and the duck-billed platypus are monotremes.

    Mesozoic mammals
    Early Mammals
    The mammals first appeared at the same time as the dinosaurs, in the late Triassic, about 230 million years ago. Their ancestors were the mammal-like reptiles. During the first two thirds of mammalian history, when the dinosaurs ruled the Earth, the mammals were small, nocturnal animals about the size of mice and rats. When the dinosaurs died out 65 million years ago, the mammals were well equipped to exploit the different ecological niches left vacant, and their rapid evolution started.
    The triconodonts were the most primitive mammals. They looked like mammal-like reptiles - cynodonts - but were smaller. Like the cynodonts, they had molars with three cusps in a straight row. Large canines show that the triconodonts were carnivorous, but some may have been insectivores. They died out in the late Cretaceous.
    The multituberculates are an extinct side branch of the mammalian line; the first omnivorous mammals. They had large incisors, looking somewhat like modern rodents, and long multi-cusped molars. They were numerous and diverse in the late Cretaceous and the early Tertiary. They died out in the Oligocene, about 35 million years ago, probably because of competition from the rodents.
    The reconstruction of the skeleton of the multituberculates, shows that the legs were not tucked completely under the body as in other mammals. The legs had a slight sprawl, similar to what we see in reptiles today.

    14. Marsupial Mammals
    Marsupials are the group of mammals commonly thought of as pouched mammals.They give live birth, but they do not have long gestation
    Marsupials are the group of mammals commonly thought of as pouched mammals. They give live birth, but they do not have long gestation times like placental mammals . Instead, they give birth very early and the young animal, essentially a helpless embryo, climbs from the mother's birth canal to the nipples. There it grabs on with its mouth and continues to develop, often for weeks or months depending on the species. The short gestation time is due to having a yolk-type placenta in the mother marsupial. Placental mammals nourish the developing embryo using the mother's blood supply, allowing longer gestation times. Like other mammals, the marsupials are covered with hair. Mothers nurse their young, as shown in the picture of two kangaroos at right. A young kangaroo may nurse from its mother even when it has grown almost to its mother`s size. The only naturally occurring marsupial in the United States is the possum, Didelphis marsupialis . In the past, however, marsupials were quite common. During the Mesozoic marsupials were very common in North America; more common, in fact, than placental mammals. They persisted here until the mid- to late-

Two of these, the malleus and incus, are derived from bones involved in jaw articulation in most other vertebrates. Mammals have hair . Adults of some species lose most of their hair, but hair is present at least during some phase of the ontogeny of all species. Mammalian hair, made of a protein called keratin , serves at least four functions. First, it slows the exchange of heat with the environment (insulation). Second, specialized hairs (whiskers or " vibrissae ") have a sensory function, letting the owner know when it is in contact with an object in its external environment. These hairs are often richly innervated and well-supplied with muscles that control their position. Third, through their color and pattern, hairs affect the appearance of a mammal. They may serve to camouflage, to announce the presence of especially good defense systems (for example, the conspicuous color pattern of a skunk is a warning to predators), or to communicate social information (for example, threats, such as the erect hair on the back of a wolf; sex, such as the different colors of male and female capuchin monkeys; presence of danger, such as the white underside of the tail of a whitetailed deer). Fourth, hair provides some protection, either simply by providing an additional protective layer (against abrasion or sunburn, for example) or by taking on the form of dangerous spines that deter predators (porcupines, spiny rats, others).
