Sacramento Zoo Mammals

There are several characteristics that all of us mammals have in common:

  • We nurse our young from mammary glands, hence the name “mammals”
  • We have hair or fur

What sets us apart as a group? Our adaptability and our relatively large brains.

Due to animal exhibit maintenance, weather conditions and animal care requirements, some of the animals may not be viewable. If you are interested in a particular species, please call 916-808-5888 or email the Member & Visitor Services Office to find out if you will be able to see those animals during your visit.
