Description

The collection of mammalian material at UTEP is comprised of about 8,450 prepared specimens. Since their initial organization, much of the emphasis in building the higher vertebrate holdings has been in the acquisition of skeletal material along with the more traditional skin-skull/study skin specimens. As a result, significant collections of post-cranial osteological material have accrued.
