The UNSM collection now has over 14,000 specimens primarily from Nebraska and includes nearly 1000 collected prior to 1925. Like most state collections, the UNSM mammal collection contains many large series of single species useful for population studies, but now there are substantial holdings of whole skeletons (4-5,000). An excellent collection of big game trophy heads collected by Mr. Elgin Gates hangs in the halls; these have data and represent several endangered and threatened species.
Its collection of marmots consists of 50 specimens representing 2 identified species of American Marmots.
