OLogy: Moving Mammals

Explore how mammals run, fly, swim, walk, hop, and swing!

Mammals are everywhere—from the Arctic ice to the driest desert. They live on land, in the open ocean, and underground. With more than 5,400 species, mammals move in all kinds of ways. They walk, hop, gallop, and swing from trees. They swim, dive, glide, and even fly!

Take a look at how bats , bears , dolphins , gazelles , gibbons , and kangaroos move.
