Of course, there are 5,420 species of mammals. So, obviously, we are going to limit ourselves to the most important ones, or rather: to those that are most common in our daily lives, because they are all important to maintaining the balance and diversity on the planet…

There are mammalian animals in every country in the world, whether in the wild, in captivity, or as part of our lives as pets. So you will always be given the opportunity to talk about animals in whatever context or place you find yourself.

But let’s get to the point. Let’s list the names of the mammals in Spanish once and for all.
