Meet our Plants

Only one species of mammal lives at the Tennessee Aquarium, the river otters. The river otter is made for swimming and living in cold mountain streams. A member of the weasel family, it has an elongated body, short legs, webbed feet and a long stout tail.

Mammals are a class of endothermic (able to generate their own body heat) vertebrates having a body covered with hair or fur, a four-chambered heart and possessing mammary glands which produce milk for their offspring.
