What is a Mammal?

Mammals are animals that are born with fur or hair. Mammals produce live young which they nourish with milk. They are warm-blooded and have the most highly developed nervous system of all the animals. A mammal usually has four limbs and a four-chambered heart. The largest mammal is the blue whale at 100 feet in length. The smallest mammals are shrews, mice, and bats. Many are less than two inches long, excluding the tail length.
