The Indian species are the Eutherians which has several orders like Primates (Monkeys and Lemurs), Chiroptera (Bats), Cetacea (Whales and Dolphins), Sirenia (Dugongs), Ungulata (Hooped animals), Insectivora (Shrew tribe), Carnivora (Flesheaters), Rodentia (Gnawers), Edentata (with no teeth), etc. The reptiles of India are air-breathing vertebrates with hair and reproduce generally by laying eggs.
