Our mammology collections support the work of scientists interested in the study of natural history, anatomy, physiology, taxonomy, ethology, and ecology of mammals.

More than 5,000 study skins, skulls, skeletons, fluid-preserved specimens, and mounted specimens make up our mammal collection, which includes specimens collected by John Bowles, transferred from Central College. From aardvark to zebra, we have it all.

Researchers, faculty, instructors, students, and others needing assistance with digital or in-person access, object/specimen loans, other special arrangements, or more detailed information on our research collections may contact our research collections team.
