Mammals

Mammals are among the most adaptable animals on the planet.

 

Although they vary greatly from one another in several ways including size, diet, environment and behavior, they all share four distinct traits: hair or fur; mammary glands; hinged jaws; and three tiny bones in their middle ears.


Abu Dhabi’s wild mammals are our treasures and they play an important role in maintaining the structures and functions of our natural ecosystem.
