The class Mammalia is composed of Earth's mammals. All mammals share at least three characteristics not found in other animals: hair, three middle ear bones, and milk production. The zoo houses and cares for a variety of mammals including carnivores (such as large cats: Lions, Leopards, Tigers, etc.), omnivores (such as Bears), herbivores (mainly hoofed animals), and primates. Mammals make up a very important part of our planet's wildlife. In fact, the mammal class includes the tallest land animal (the Giraffe), the "king of beasts" (the African Lion), and the smartest animal (the Human). Mammals can be found on all continents and in all oceans. Some estimates suggest that there as many as 5,000 mammal species in the world!
