Iowa Mammals in General

Raccoon

Mammals are among the most popular animals. Mammals are warm-blooded, have a back-bone, hairy, and have mammary glands that produce milk to feed their young. Mammals live on all continents and in all oceans. They are adapted to an incredible variety of lifestyles and habitats.

In Iowa, mammals live in the woodlands, prairies, waterways, farm fields, and towns. Many of Iowa’s mammals are active at night. It is safer to search for food at night than in broad daylight.
