The mammal collection has ~12,000 specimens preserved as study skins, skulls, skeletons, and fluid preprations. The vast majority of the specimens are regional, with a focus on rodents of Southern California, Utah, and northwestern Mexico. The collection includes vouchers from systematic and parasitological studies of CSULB faculty. A separately housed teaching collection is used for Vertebrate Zoology, Mammalogy, and Introductory Biology classes.
