Animalia Chordata Mammalia

Mammalia (Linnaeus, 1758) are warm-blooded chordates with hair or fur, mammary glands, and usually well-defined ears. Most mammals, especially therian mammals, give live birth; however, others such as monotremes lay eggs.


  • Agnathadea (jawless mammals)
  • Carnivora (mammals with forward facing eyes and jaws and teeth designed for catching and/or chasing prey)
  • Cetacea (mostly massive and carnivorous marine mammals that usually posess nostrils on top of their heads known as blowholes)
  • Chimeria (mammals displaying parts of multiple unrelated species)
  • Chiroptera (big-eared flying mammals with wings derived from their hands similar to those of dragons)
  • Dasyuromorphia (carnivorous Australian marsupials)
  • Didelphimorphia (superficially rat-like marsupials famous for playing dead)
  • Diprotodontia (marsupials with a pair of large procumbent incisors)
  • Eulipotyphla (an order of mammals that includes most members of the now-obsolete wastebasket taxon Insectivora, including moles, shrews and hedgehogs)
  • Glires (mammals with continuously growing incisors in the upper and lower parts of the jaws)
  • Macroscelidea (shrew-like mammals with trunks)
  • Monotremata (egg-laying mammals with beaks)
  • Primates (intelligent mammals with hands and fingernails, including humans and monkeys)
  • Proboscidea (usually rough-skinned mammals that have evolved a dextrous fifth limb, usually known as a trunk, from a fusion of the nose and upper lip)
  • Sirenia (fully aquatic, mostly herbivorous mammals with fusiform bodies, thick skin and paddle-shaped forelimbs)
  • Sphinxiforms (chimeric mythical mammals with four-legged typically carnivoran-like bodies and human- or primate-like heads)
  • Ungulata (usually herbivorous mammals with hooves)
