Our Animals

Mammals are a wonderfully diverse group of warm blooded vertebrates (have backbones) including humans and animals!

All mammals have hair or fur, a unique jaw structure and produce milk to feed their young. Almost all give birth to live babies but there are a few egg laying mammals (known as monotremes). 

Scientists have identified more than 6,495 mammal species on Earth, roughly one-fifth of which are known to be endangered, threatened or extinct.

The ICUN Red List identifies species at risk and you can see the status of each on their listing. When visiting Lemur Heights you'll meet our red-ruffed and ring-tailed lemurs, examples of critically endangered and endangered species here at the park.
