Mammal Morphology - Bats and People
Mammals share many body traits in common. Yet each species has some characteristics that are unique. Both the common traits and the unique ones work to enable the species survive and thrive. Animal morphology or anatomy is the study of the shape, form, and structure of animals and their parts.

A table is a great way to make a visual representation of the findings so you can identify for similarties and differences. Enter the characteristics down the first column. Place a + plus sign if the mammal has that characteristic.
