For mammals I chose a dolphin and a fallow deer. For mammals 2 characteristics they share are they have 3 inner ear bones. In most other groups of animals that care for their young, food from foraging or hunting is brought to the young. With all mammals, the females have specialized glands that produce milk as nutrition. Almost all mammals have external teats through which the young suckle milk from these mammary glands. The only mammals that do not have teats are the platypus and the echidna, which sweat the milk onto their bodies for the young to lick off . Between these 2 mammals the dolphin lives in water and swims to travel the deer walks on 4 legs. Mammals are endothermic, meaning they can regulate their own body temperature. A mammal's metabolism controls the amount of heat its body produces. The sweat glands help cool the body when needed. This allows a mammal's body temperature to remain a constant temperature regardless of its surroundings. For the 2 insects I chose a Leucorrhinia and a spring stone fly.
