Mammal Classification in Baraminology

bighornsheep01

Mammals are a grouping of animals with the common feature of feeding milk to the young. They also have a skeleton made of bones, are warm-blooded, most have fur and teeth, most have live birth (a few lay eggs), and they generally care for the young until they can care for themselves. Fur is something unique to mammals, but not all mammals have hair.

Variation among Mammals

Mammals are diverse in their forms and lifestyles. Usually a mammal is thought of as a furry land creature, since fur is unique to mammals and many species have four legs. However, there are mammals with smooth skin, both on land and in the water. There are also mammals adapted for swimming, flying, tree tops, digging, and tunneling. This variety creates difficulties for the evolutionary taxonomy of this group.

Mammals in Baraminology

Within mammals, the taxonomic level of Family was found to distinguish a Created Kind the vast majority of time. Only a few times was this classification given to a lower or higher rank. Within Baraminology, there are approximately 137 kinds of mammals alive today. There are also potentially another 170 kinds known from the fossil record. Taken together, this suggests a total of over 300 Created Kinds that may have been carried on the Ark.

The Theory of Evolution places 28 Orders of Mammals with over 4800 species. Mammary Glands, hair, four chambered heart and warm-blooded. Extant species.
