We have introduced a table of descriptions of Derbyshire mammal species and an illustrated key to help with their identification.
The key consists of several steps, each one with a choice of two statements. Select whichever statement is correct and move to the next stage.
Keep working through until you arrive at a species. This leads to the description of the mammal, its likely habitats, and field signs. There is also a link to its status in the county.
Or you may wish to go straight to the species identification part, bypassing the key.DERBYSHIRE MAMMAL IDENTIFICATION
