There are over 5,000 mammal species in the world, ranging in size from the tiny Bumblebee Bat to the 190 ton Blue Whale.

Mammals are air-breathing animals, characterised by having hair or fur. Females possess mammary glands, which are used for suckling their young.

We have over 500 individual mammals from more than 40 different species, ranging in size from our tiny Guinea Pigs up to our Tall Giraffes.
