KINDS OF MAMMALS
ELEPHANT
Elephants are large mammals from the Elephantidae family and the order Proboscidea. Traditionally, two species are recognized, namely the African elephant (Loxodonta africana) and the Asian elephant (Elephas maximus), although some evidence suggests that the African bush elephant and African forest elephant are separate species (L. africana and L. cyclotis). Elephants are distributed throughout sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia.
GIRAFFE
The giraffe or zarafah (scientific name: Giraffa camelopardalis) is an even-toed hoofed mammal endemic to Africa and is the tallest animal species that lives on land. Male giraffes can reach a height of 4.8 to 5.5 meters and weigh up to 1,360 kilograms. Female giraffes are usually slightly shorter and lighter. Giraffes are related to deer and cattle but from a different tribe, namely the Giraffidae which includes the giraffe itself and its closest relative, the okapi. Its natural habitat covers an area from Chad to South Africa
HORSE
Horse (Equus caballus or Equus ferus caballus) is one of ten modern species of mammals from the genus Equus. This animal has long been one of the most important pets economically and historically, and has played an important role in the transportation of people and goods for thousands of years.
TIGER
Tiger (Panthera tigris) is the largest living cat species of the genus Panthera. Tigers have distinctive stripes on their fur, in the form of dark vertical stripes on orange fur, with white undercoat. Tigers are apex predators, they mainly prey on ungulates such as deer and wild boars.
DEER
Deer (English: deer) are ruminant mammals belonging to the Cervidae family. One characteristic of deer is the presence of antlers, not antlers, which are bony outgrowths that develop annually (usually in the summer) especially in male deer (although there are some exceptions).
