Hi,
I have today downloaded my mammals1 catagory. It includes some examples of mammals- African elephant, Black rhinoceros, Polar bear, Bottlenose dolphin and Koala with pronunciations. I hope you don't mind my Australian accent too much.

Here are the POI details if you would like to recored them with the images. I removed my recordings from the upload in order to reduce the file size.

MAMMALS 1

MAMMALS
-There are over 4000 kinds of mammals.
-The Blue whale is the largest mammals living today
-Mammals are warm blooded animals that have mammary glands and a 4 chambered heart.
-Mammals give birth to live young as opposed to laying eggs.
-Mammals are either partially or completely covered in hair.
-Humans just like you are mammals
-The teeth of most mammals come in a variety of shapes and sizes designed for chewing many kinds of foods. Humans for example have incisors for cutting and molars for crushing.
-Mammals have larger brains than other vertebrates of equal size making them most capable learners. This is why you are able to read and learn so many fascinating facts.
-All mammals are vertebrates. This means they have a backbone.
-Mammals are the only animals that have flaps around the ears.

AFRICAN ELEPHANT
-The scientific name for the African elephant is Loxodonta Africana
-African elephants live in the wild on much of the African continent south of the Sahara.
-One elephant can eat 300 pounds (136 kilograms) of food in one day.
-Elephants use their tusks to get food by digging up roots and prying bark off trees.
-Of all animals, elephants have the longest pregnancy- It lasts 22 months.
-Because of their size, adult African elephants have no enemies other than people. Calves, however, may fall prey to lions, crocodiles, and other meat-eaters.
-Elephant tusks are ivory teeth that grow throughout the animals' lives.
-African elephants are mammals.
-Like most noses, the elephant’s trunk is for smelling, but it is also used for touching and grasping.
-African elephants eat mainly roots, leaves, fruit, grasses, and bark.
-Elephants can live to be about 70 years old.
-An African elephant can weigh more than 6 tons (5,443 kilograms) and stand as tall as 12 feet (4 meters) at the shoulder.

BLACK RHINOCEROS
-The scientific name for the black rhinoceros is Diceros bicornis.
-The word rhinoceros comes from two Greek words: Rhino means nose, and ceros means horn.
-There are five different species of rhinoceros: black, white, Javan, great Indian, and Sumatran.
-All rhinos eat only vegetation and no meat. Rhinos may live up to 45 years old in captivity.
-While rhinos generally try to avoid humans, they can be ferocious if they are cornered or feel threatened.
-Humans are adult rhinos’s main enemy. Baby rhinos can fall prey to other predators, such as crocodiles and lions.
-Black rhinos live in the wild in Africa. They are an endangered species.
-Rhinos don't see very well, but scientists think they can smell and hear well.
-The Black rhinoceros is a mammal.



POLAR BEAR
-Polar bears have been known to swim 100 miles (161 kilometres) at a stretch.
-Polar bears live along shores and on sea ice in the icy cold Arctic.
-Polar bears are mammals.
-Paw pads with rough surfaces help prevent polar bears from slipping up on the ice.
-Polar bears swim using their large front paws to propel themselves through the water and their back legs to steer.
-Only humans prey on polar bears.
-The scientific name for polar bear is Ursus maritimus, which means "sea bear."
-Adult males generally weigh between 720 and 1,700 pounds (363 and 771 kilograms). Adult females often weigh between 500 and 600 pounds (227 and 272 kilograms). Males can grow to ten feet (three meters) in length—the height of a one-story building.
-Polar bears are the largest predators on land, and they are the largest of all bears.
-Polar bears have fur and skin that allow them to absorb sunlight for warmth. Their blubber, or fat, insulates them in cold water.

BOTTLENOSE DOLPHIN
-Bottlenose dolphins "talk" to each other using groans, grunts, whistles, and squeaks. They can even find food by making a series of clicks (called echolocation).
-Males are larger than females and can be as long as 13 feet (4 meters) and weigh more than a thousand pounds (454 kilograms).
-Having little or no sense of smell, dolphins make up for it with a sharp sense of hearing.
-Bottlenose dolphins are mammals.
-These aquatic acrobats are called bottlenose dolphins because their beaks are shaped like bottles.
-The scientific family name for dolphins is Delphinidae.
-Bottlenose dolphins have excellent vision both in and out of water.
-Females give birth every two to three years, normally one calf after a pregnancy of one year. The calves are often born tail first so they don't drown.
-Bottlenose dolphins swim in groups called pods. A pod usually has a dozen or so animals. Pods often combine to form herds. Some herds include several hundred bottlenose dolphins.
-Dolphins will eat almost any kind of fish. Their diets also include squid and small crustaceans such as shrimps. They swallow their food whole.
-Bottlenose dolphins may look like fish but they are mammals. They breathe air, just like you do.
-Although dolphins live in most of the world's oceans, bottlenoses are largely found in temperate and tropical waters.

KOALA
-Koalas are found in the wild only in the forests of eastern Australia.
-Koalas have their own built-in cushion! The fur on a koala's bottom is extra thick so that the koala can comfortably rest in trees.
-Koalas live in trees, sometimes coming down to the ground to seek shade or another tree. They occasionally jump from one tree to the next.
-Koalas are mammals
-The scientific name for the koala is Phascolarctos cinereus.
-Koalas are marsupials; newborn koalas—called joeys—continue to develop in their mothers' pouches.
-Koalas have thick woolly fur that protects them from both heat and cold. It also acts like a raincoat.
-Koalas spend as many as 18 hours a day napping and resting.
-The word koala may come from an Aboriginal word meaning no drink.
-Koalas have a diet of Eucalyptus leaves. Although koalas do drink when necessary, they obtain most of the moisture they need from leaves.
