why does our skin burn in the sun but animals’ don’t?

In: Biology

Other mammals have fur protecting their skin. However, marine mammals like whales and dolphins don’t and are indeed susceptible to sun burn if they spend too much time at the surface.

Most animals that have no fur protecting them from the sun roll in the mud e.g Elephants, Rhinoes, Pigs

Animals do get sunburned if their skin is exposed. But most animals have a fur coating that prevents them from getting burned.
