Right!

These mammals all look different from each other, but they all:
  • Breathe oxygen and have a backbone and hair or fur
  • Have a lot of control over their own body temperature
  • Care for their young and females can produce milk to feed their young
Mammals found in the park that are fairly typical for this region include chipmunks, squirrels, groundhogs, eastern cottontail rabbits, voles, moles, opossums, raccoons, white-tailed deer, red foxes, bats and skunks. Recent sightings of bobcat, beaver, mink, and black bear indicate that populations of these mammals have returned to the area.

People are mammals, too. We hope you can visit Catoctin Mountain Park someday!
