Upper Elementary Science - I
2.34 Mammals

Mammals are part of the animal kingdom. Most mammals live on land. Some mammals live in water. Mammals are warm blooded. Their body temperature stays the same in all surroundings.

Mammals have hair or fur on their body. In order to stay alive they need to breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. Mammal mothers feed milk to their babies.

Mammals have some of the same body parts as other animals but, in many ways, their bodies are special. The skull and jaw are bones in a mammal's head. The skull protects the brain, and the jaw grabs and chews food. Mammals have brains bigger than other animals.

A skeleton made of bones gives strength and shape to a mammal's body. Many mammals have a tail. Tails help them swim, grab things, keep their balance, or brush away insects. A mammal's sense of sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch help it find food and avoid danger. Lungs bring fresh air into the body.

The heart pumps blood throughout the body. Most mammals have four limbs that they use for running, swimming, digging, or holding things.
