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.

You can search in their Category Science Biology Animalia Chordata Mammalia Marsupials......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-

    Mammal Species of the World (MSW)
    The Mammal Species of the World (MSW) contains the names of the 4,629 currently recognized species of mammals, in a taxonomic hierarchy that includes Order, Family, Subfamily, and Genus. The information was taken from: Wilson, D. E., and D. M. Reeder (eds). 1993. Mammal Species of the World. Smithsonian Institution Press, 1206 pp. (Available from Smithsonian Institution Press, 1-800-782-4612 or 703-435-7809.) The list was compiled by an international team of contributors . It can be used as an on-line reference, or adapted as an authority file for collections management activities of mammal collections. The list was compiled under the auspices of the American Society of Mammalogists. The data in this checklist of mammal species of the world are being presented for non-commercial, personal, and collections management use only.

    Welcome to the Incredible World of Mammals
    Look around you sometime, the chances are that if you see an animal it is a mammal. Mammals are the dominant life form on this planet at the moment, at least from a human perspective. There are about 4260 species of mammals known on this planet at the moment, though taxonomists are still arguing. Mammals are not the most speciose animal on the planet, 3 other groups of vertebrates outnumber them at the moment, Reptiles 6787 species, Birds 9703 species and Fishes with approximately 25000 species. Invertebrates, of course, have groups with huge numbers of species that outnumber all the vertebrates put together; Molluscs 80 000 and Insects 1 000 000; while Arachnids with a mere 44 000 species still outnumber any 3 groups of vertebrates put together. Mammals however are big. You can see them easily, and perhaps most importantly you are one. Mammals are there, everywhere you look; large warm-blooded, four-limbed vertebrates whose females produce milk (see What is a Mammal ). Elephants and Whales, Pigs, Horses, Cattle, Sheep, Dogs, Cats, Hamsters, Rats and of course Human beings (that's you and me) are all mammals.

    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.

    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.

    The first 10 million years of the age of mammals
    Despite this impressive diversification, most Paleocene mammals are still on a primitive level of anatomy in comparison to mammals of today. Often they show only the first beginning of specializations that characterize their descendants from later epochs, such as optimization of the teeth for a special kind of food or adaptations of the limbs to fast running. The Paleocene mammalian fauna is therefore often called archaic. The beginning of the following epoch, the Eocene, brought about an important modernization of this fauna. Several groups of mammals with more modern appearance spread over the northern hemisphere at this time, whereas the decline of the archaic forms started. The Paleocene is a crucial time in the history mammals. Unfortunately, mammal fossils from this epoch are either scarce or entirely unknown in many parts of the world. Thus we can only speculate how the fauna of whole continents looked after the extinction of dinosaurs. Even where fossils occur, most species are only known from their characteristic teeth, and skeletons are only known for a few forms. Nevertheless, knowledge of Paleocene mammals is steadily increasing. This website tries to summarize what we know about these first ten million years of the age of mammals.
