What do you think of when you think of a mammal? Perhaps this isn't a word you've heard before and you don't immediately think of anything at all. Every one of us sees some mammals every day. Many people keep mammals as pets. Cats and dogs are mammals, as are mice and hamsters. Many farm animals are mammals as well, including cattle, sheep and horses.
