A human being is a mammal. Most of us appreciate that at some level. But what does it mean to have more in common with a horse and an armadillo than with a sparrow, gecko or T. Rex ? Why do only mammals have hair, mammary glands and three bones in their middle ears? 'I, Mammal' is a personalised quest to understand what it means to be a mammal, exploring the different traits that uniquely define them.
