Mammals

There are over 5,000 mammal species in the world, and we have some of the most exotic and endangered in the world.

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 1200 individual mammals from more than 75 different species, ranging in size from our tiny Harvest Mice up to our enormous Asian Elephants.

Many of the species that we specialise in, like the Black Rhino, are in danger of becoming extinct in the wild in the next 25 years. The work done here with these species will help to conserve them for future generations.
