Museum Specialist Sara Ketelsen will highlight some of the most fascinating specimens in the Museum's mammalogy collection. Join this live program to ask questions and to find out what we have in common with other members of the Mammalia class, which includes a great variety of vertebrates, from tiny bumblebee bats to gargantuan blue whales and, of course, humans!

Submit photos of a mammal you've spotted in nature to [email protected] to have them identified by our scientist.

Join the watch party on Thursday, 6/11.
