There are around 5,400 known mammal species on Earth; more than 40 of these species are represented at Zoo Atlanta. All mammals have mammary glands for nursing their young, and all have hair – even if they don’t have much! With the exception of the unusual group of egg-laying mammals known as monotremes, all mammals give birth to live young.
