Mammals at Cub Creek Science & Animal Camp
Mammals are one class of animals that have backbones, are warm-blooded, breath air, and whose females have milk-secreting glands for their young. In the class Mammalia, there are 19 orders and over 5,000 species. Mammals range in size from the 2-inch shrew to the 120-foot whale.
The following mammals reside at Bear River Ranch (click name for more information):
Campers help with the bottle feeding of the baby goats and other baby animals in our nursery. They walk the llamas, miniature horses, and donkeys, hand feed many of the other animals including our wallabies and cavy. Our new monkey enclosures allow campers to hand feed the monkeys. Campers can also make treats and toys for the animals which they can add to the animals enclosure.
We work with the local shelter to bring in puppies and kittens that need homes. We provide them with socialization, good nutrition, and veterinary care. Campers who are looking for a new family pet may find the perfect addition right here at camp. The adoption fee is $65 which includes an examination by our vet, worming, its first set of shots and spay or neuter (if the animal is old enough).
