Does it matter that we have more in common with a horse or an elephant than we do with a parrot or a frog? Liam Drew delves into our biological history to explore what it means to be mammalian, charting the evolution of milk, warm blood, and burgeoning brains as well as the emergence of complex teeth, ears, and reproductive systems. Here too are tales of zoological oddities, and reflections on our links to the 5500 other mammal species, some of which reveal the deep roots of traits we tend to consider particularly human.
