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 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.
