Mamalogy (mammals)

The Collection of Mammals preserves a number of 690 pieces representing: naturalized mammals, furs and moulds. The importance of this collection is given by old pieces collected during the years when their presence was being notified for the first time on the territory of Romania (1929 naturalized jackal). Species of chiropters are also of great value, 15 of the 17 species present in Oltenia region being preserved in the collection of Oltenia Museum, as new species for Oltenia and very rare ones for the country. The richness of species and their scientific importance make the collection a valuable material to be used by specialists in the country who are willing to learn more about the fauna in Oltenia. The collection has been enhanced through exhibitions on various thematic projects, the most significant one entitled: Game species and Hunting in Romania.
