Mammals are warm blooded animals with hair or fur that provide milk for their young. They include some of the most familiar and loved of all animals, from bunny rabbits to tigers. Mammals thrive in all climates, from the driest of deserts to the coldest, deepest of seas.


Here at the Wildlife Center, you’ll find some of Georgia’s wild mammals, the Virginia Opossum and the Striped Skunk on our discovery trail. In our education programs, we also present several smaller mammals including rodents and ferrets. Here you’ll learn about the importance of their fur, warm blood and how they care for their young. You won’t want to miss an encounter with these fuzzy ambassadors!
