Mammals of Pennsylvania Online Resource 

As the only Pennsylvania museum with a mammal collection that has remained active since before 1900, the Mammals collection at Carnegie Museum of Natural History is a major repository for mammals collected in Pennsylvania. For more than a hundred years, section staff have been involved in the study of mammals of the Commonwealth and have actively participated in joint projects with the Pennsylvania Game Commission as well as universities and colleges around the state. The Mammals of Pennsylvania Online Resource provides access to information most frequently asked of staff by educators, students and their parents, and members of the general public. It is designed for the non-technical user. Click here to visit the Mammals of Pennsylvania site.
