This is a list of the mammal species recorded in the Philippines. There are 210 native mammal species in the Philippines, excluding those of the order Cetacea (whales, dolphins, and porpoises) and extinct species (Pleistocene Epoch), of which around six are critically endangered, around thirteen are endangered, around thirty are vulnerable, and around two are near threatened. Eight of the species listed for the Philippines have been extinct since the Pleistocene Epoch. One fossil species of Sirenia has been found in Palawan and could have been extinct since the Miocene, the eastern-most fossil remains of any Sirenia in history, However, there are also extinct deer and pig fossil remains known in the Philippine not yet included in this list, as well as other buffalo and small mammal species

  • This is a list of the mammal species recorded in the Philippines. There are 210 native mammal species in the Philippines, excluding those of the order Cetacea (whales, dolphins, and porpoises) and extinct species (Pleistocene Epoch), of which around six are critically endangered, around thirteen are endangered, around thirty are vulnerable, and around two are near threatened. Eight of the species listed for the Philippines have been extinct since the Pleistocene Epoch. One fossil species of Sirenia has been found in Palawan and could have been extinct since the Miocene, the eastern-most fossil remains of any Sirenia in history, However, there are also extinct deer and pig fossil remains known in the Philippine not yet included in this list, as well as other buffalo and small mammal species from the Pleistocene Epoch. One species which became extinct in the 13th to possibly the 16th century, the Asian elephant, which was transported to the Sultanate of Sulu and Maguindanao but became extinct in those areas or whose individuals were transported back to Sabah for unknown reasons. One former species, Acerodon lucifer, is extinct, but is now highly regarded as part of the species Acerodon jubatus today, thus, the species still thrives in the archipelago, but is locally extinct on the island of Panay. Seven species in the country have been introduced for agriculture, transportation, companionship, and tourism and has played significant roles in the livelihood of the people. One species, the sika deer, was introduced for unknown purpose, and evolved into as separate subspecies on Jolo Island, while three species (introduced accidentally through ships) are worldwide pests: the black and brown rats, and the house mouse. The taxonomy and naming of the individual species is based on 1) The Synopsis of Philippine Mammals by the Smithsonian Institution; 2) recent articles on species discovery in the country; 3) domesticated profiles; and 4) those used in existing Wikipedia articles as of May 21, 2007 and supplemented by the common names and taxonomy from the IUCN, the Smithsonian Institution, or the University of Michigan where no Wikipedia article was available. The following tags are used to highlight each species' conservation status as assessed by the International Union for Conservation of Nature: Some species were assessed using an earlier set of criteria. Species assessed using this system have the following instead of near threatened and least concern categories: (en)
  • La fauna dei mammiferi delle Filippine è considerata di importanza primaria per la sua varietà di specie endemiche, che in rapporto alla superficie totale dell'arcipelago, la rende una tra le faune con il più alto numero di endemismi per area di superficie. Questo numero è destinato ad aumentare grazie all'eccezionale quantità di nuove scoperte effettuate negli ultimi anni, pari al numero di nuove specie scoperte in nazioni come il Brasile e il Perù, le quali hanno però una superficie circa 10 volte più estesa, oppure come il Madagascar, grande quasi il doppio. Di interesse notevole è il numero di Muridi e la loro varietà, che va dall'enorme ratto arboricolo Phloeomys pallidus ai piccoli ratti-toporagno terricoli del genere Archboldomys oppure l'elevato endemismo di pipistrelli della famiglia degli Pteropodidi. Tra questa numerosa diversità 33 mammiferi terrestri e 6 marini sono considerati dalla IUCN come specie minacciate ed altre 19 come prossime alla minaccia. (it)
