North American Mammals

Tuesday, May 17th, 2016 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

The National Museum of History presents a searchable database of all living mammals of North America in English and Spanish. Choose the language you want to use by clicking the Enter button or  Entre el sitio.

Once you’ve entered the site you’re given several options for navigation. You can use the side menu to the left of the screen to check out the archive, collections, field guide, and glossary. Or you can use the navigation options in the middle of the page that will let you search by map, species name, family tree, conservation status, or special collections.

I recommend before you get started that you check out the About section. It goes through and explains the different sections of the site and how to use them. Visiting this section will make your searches more efficient.

If you decide not to head over to the About page, I recommend starting with whatever is the most interesting to you. I started browsing by checking out the Map search feature. I was interested to see what mammals were hanging out in my neck of the woods in Wisconsin. So I zoomed into the map and click on Wisconsin and then clicked the Explore button. This loads the mammal listing on the right side of the page where you can click the boxes to check them which will in turn display that mammal’s habitat! You can also learn about the eco-region that the area falls into. This was a really interesting way to browse.

That’s just one of the many ways that you can search mammals from North America on the site. Go check out the others for yourself today!
