Abstract: The Kenneth E. Behring Family Hall of Mammals opened in November 2003. This exciting learning environment features 274 mammal specimens, nearly a dozen fossils, and plenty of hands-on interactives. An Evolution Theater and a tiny model of one of the earliest mammals tell the dramatic story of mammal evolution over the past 225 million years. The Kenneth E Behring Family Hall of Mammals website explores how all mammals, past and present, are related to each other by virtue of common descent. Visitors to the site will learn that, as mammals, they belong to an ancient lineage that stretches back to before the time of the dinosaurs. As living mammals, they share a set of characteristics that helps scientists define this group. [Information of the supplier]
