Mammals and Tails
Are there any animals (mammals) that do NOT have
tails? If there are, would you please tell me which ones have no
All mammals have tails at some time. Humans have small tails early in their
development...well before they are born.
The first animals that come to mind are apes. This would enclude orangatans,
gorillas, and gibbons. Guinea pigs do not have much of a tail if any.
