      The most complete fossil of any mammal discovered by Darwin was an almost entire skeleton, later recognized as another new species of ground sloth by . Fossil Mammal Skeletons All mammals share at least three physical characteristics; hair, three ear bones (incus, malleus, and stapes) and the ability to produce milk. They are one of the most diverse classes of animals in the world with an enormous range in size, dietary preference, and behavior.

    Cambridge Core - Evolutionary Biology - A Fossil History of Southern African Land Mammals - by D. Margaret Avery. The third reference book I have chosen to write about in this article is The Fossil Vertebrates of Florida by the Florida Paleontological Society and edited by Dr. Richard C. Hulbert, Jr. Since there were many contributions to this book by Florida’s state and regional club members, there is detailed information for each listed after the Preface.

    The Museum's fossil mammal collection contains an estimated , specimens from around the world, and is rich in type and figured material. Strengths The collection includes historical research sub-collections, such as mammalian material collected by Charles Darwin on the voyage of the Beagle.   The book, The Fossil Vertebrates of Florida, will also be a good reference to those with little or no training in paleontology. This website will frequently use names of land mammal ages to describe the relative age of a fossil site or a species. View a complete description of land mammal ages, how they are used, and which ones are found in.
