The Vertebrate Museum’s mammal collection contains approximately 8,750 specimens, including skins and skeletal material from a variety of terrestrial, aquatic, marine and volant mammals.

The collection dates back to 1923 and is particularly strong in marine mammals of the Pacific Ocean and terrestrial mammals from northern California and the Great Basin. It is fully accredited by the American Society of Mammalogists. We also have an outstanding teaching collection of over 800 specimens, with exceptional coverage of the Orders and Families of living mammals.
