Mammals   

1     Mammals are warm-blooded animals. Mother mammals produce milk to raise their babies. All mammals have either hair or fur. They can be found in many different types of environments. Cats, dogs, elephants, whales, monkeys, and human beings are all mammals.
 
2     Mammals are able to keep the temperature inside their bodies constant, because they are warm-blooded animals. Mammals keep their bodies cool by sweating. Their body covering of hair or fur also helps mammals keep their body temperature constant. Some mammals, such as American bison, have thicker hair during winter to keep them warm. Then they shed some hair and do not have as much during summer to adjust to the hot weather. An interesting fact about mammals is that smaller mammals lose heat quicker than larger ones. That means that larger mammals can stay warm easier than smaller ones.
 
3     Not all animals are warm-blooded! Some animals, such as lizards and frogs, are cold-blooded animals. Cold-blooded animals are not mammals. Cold-blooded animals' body temperature matches the world around them - cold when it is cold and hot when it is hot.
