List of mammals of Estonia

This is a list of Estonian mammals. The Estonian mammal fauna is somewhat impoverished compared to that of southern and central Europe due to the short period of time since the last ice age.

Native (usually synonymous with indigenous) species are considered to be species which are today present in the region in question, and have been continuously present in that region since a certain period of time. There are no endemic mammal species in Estonia (that is, there are no mammal species native to only this region).

Insectivores

Bats

Lagomorphs

Rodents

Carnivores

Omnivores

Pinnipeds

Cetaceans

Even-toed ungulates
