ABSTRACT
Mammals, the group of vertebrates (animals with backbones) to which human beings belong. Mammals are distinguished from all other animals by their mammary glands, glands that produce milk to feed the young. Mammals are also unique in having hair, although it may be scant. They are warm-blooded and air-breathing, and all but the whales and sirenians, or sea cows, have four limbs.
