What is a mammal? Scientists classify or group animals in a variety of ways. One way in which they do this is by looking at the animal’s characteristics. Mammals such as whales, elephants, and cheetahs have many features that make them unique from other animals. For example, mammals are all warm-blooded. This means that they create their own body heat and can stay warm in cold climates, unlike cold-blooded animals such as reptiles. Another key feature of mammals is that they have lungs which enable them to breathe oxygen in the air. Interestingly, all mammals have hair at some stage in their lives. This includes aquatic mammals such as whales which have hair along their jaw and head.
