|Groups of Mammals|
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.
For more information on mammals, click on the links below:
Monotremes are primitive, egg-laying mammals. Spiny anteaters and the duck-billed platypus are monotremes.
Marsupials are mammals whose young are born very immature. Most female marsupials have pouches.
Placental mammals are advanced mammals whose unborn young are nourished through a placenta.

In addition to printing the animals, you can copy a printout (click here for instructions) and paste it into a painting program (like Paint) and color the animal there. (Thanks to Grace P. from Thorngrove School for this great idea.)
