The exploration of mammalian diversity distributed at the tribal district of Dimapur in Nagaland, India revealed the presence of a diverse population of 16 species of mammals belonging to 16 genera, 16 families. The species of order Primate and a single species of order Oryctolagus cuniculus were observed in the Dimapur. The mammalian species reported presented an assemblage of unique and threatened species of mammals. The analysis of data revealed that Hoolock hoolock (Harlan, 1834) endogered species, Ursus thibetanus (G. Cuvier, 1823), Panthera pardus (Linnaeus, 1758) valnerble species and Oryctolagus cuniculus (Linnaeus, 1758) near threatened species have been listed in IUCN 3.1, while out of the sixty specie s reported ten species have been placed under different schedules of Indian Wildlife (Protection) Act 1972. A total of sixty species reported from the study area was found to be declared threatened by IUCN 3.1.
