Diversity Of Mammals Placental Mammals

  1. 1. Diversity of Mammals<br />Placental Mammals<br />
  2. 2. Placental Mammals<br />In placental mammals, nutrients, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and wastes are exchanged efficiently between the embryo and mother through the placenta<br />This is the type of animal that human beings along with just about the majority of all mammals belong to<br />
  3. 3. Artiodactyls<br />Hoofed mammals with an even number of toes on each foot are Artiodactyls<br />Giraffes along with the rest of the Artiodactyls are grazing animals<br />
  4. 4. Carnivores<br />Meat-eating predators are Carnivores<br />Grizzly Bears, like the one showed here, among a few other animals in this family are not completely Carnivorous. When meat is not readily available, they are able to eat plants as well<br />
  5. 5. Cetaceans<br />Dolphins and whales, like this Blue Whale, are called Cetaceans<br />Cetaceans are carnivorous marine mammals that live and breed in the ocean coming up to the surface only to breathe<br />
  6. 6. Chiropterans<br />The only mammals capable of true flight<br />Bats feed mainly on nectar, insects, and fruit<br />Only three species of Bats feed on the blood of other invertebrates<br />
  7. 7. insectivores<br />Insectivores have sharp claws and pointy snouts that help them seek all the insects that they like to eat<br />African Hedgehogs, like the one pictured here, have calm natures and make nice pets<br />
  8. 8. Lagomorphs<br />Like Rodents, Lagomorphs are herbivorous. Unlike rodents, they have two pairs of incisor teeth in the upper jaw, and strong back legs which are better adapted for leaping and hopping<br />A great example of Lagomorphs are Rabbits<br />
  9. 9. Perissodactyls<br />Hoofed mammals with an odd number of toes are Perissodactyls<br />Among the animals in this family are the Rhinoceros, which are very defensive herbivores who blindly charge at whoever or whatever they feel is a threat to their baby<br />
  10. 10. Primates<br />Primates have a highly developed brain and set of complex behaviors unlike any other animal on Earth<br />Ring-Tailed Lemurs, like the one showed here belong to the Primate family as well as Human Beings<br />
  11. 11. Proboscideans<br />Mammals with trunks are Proboscideans, like this baby Elephant<br />Many species existed at one time, but now only African and Asian Elephants remain<br />
  12. 12. Rodents<br />Capybaras are the largest type of Rodent there is<br />Like all rodents, they have a single pair of long, curved incisor teeth in their upper and lower jaw<br />Rodents love gnawing on wood and other tough plant material<br />
  13. 13. Sirenians<br />Sirenians are herbivorous sea mammals, just like these Manatees<br />When Columbus first sailed to America and spotted these animals at sea, they were mistaken for mermaids<br />
  14. 14. Xenarthrans<br />Three-Banded Armadillos like the one pictured here are Xenarthians<br />Xenarthians are herbivorous creatures with very simple teeth with no enamel or no teeth at all<br />Three-Banded Armadillos are the only mammal that can perfectly roll itself into a ball<br />
