Mammal Island

Mammals have evolved to live on land, in the sea, and in the air. They move through their environments in many different ways: by hopping, running, flying, swimming, gliding, walking, climbing, and swinging from tree limb to tree limb.

Mammals are the most diverse group of vertebrates. This exhibit displays their evolutionary features.
