Hour 1 (2:00-2:50 M-Th)


What makes mammals different from all of the other animals in the Animal Kingdom? What similar qualities do mammals possess? Where do mammals reside? A mammal may weigh as little as 1/12 ounce, as do some shrews, or as much as 150 tons, like the blue whale. It may spring, waddle, or even fly. But if it has milk for its young, has hair of some kind, is relatively intelligent, and has warm blood, then it is a mammal. Mammal Study Merit Badge focuses on what it takes to be a mammal in the Animal Kingdom, and looks at what makes these animals unique. This is a great badge for younger scouts and scouts that are interested in learning about one of the many branches of the tree of life. Mammal Study is also an elective for the William T. Hornaday Award.
