Mammals (formally Mammalia) are members of a class of air-breathing vertebrate animals characterised by the possession of endothermy, hair, three middle ear bones, and mammary glands functional in mothers with young. Most mammals also possess sweat glands and specialised teeth, and the largest group of mammals, the placentals, have a placenta which feeds the offspring during gestation.The word “mammal” comes from the Latin mamma (“breast”). All female mammals nurse their young with milk which comes out from special glands, the mammary glands. The following are the list of mammals found in Periyar Tiger Reserve.
