It depends on what is considered “animal”, what is taken for “domestication”, and what does “we don't know much”mean. According to the primitive classification-animals, this is everything that is not plants (here and fungi belong in this case). Therefore, then the silkworm is also a pet. As for domestication, there is also a question – these are the animals that we have tamed, or simply use in everyday life and households. activities. A domestic cat and a forest cat are, in fact, completely different animals, but a silkworm on your plantation or a tarantula in a terrarium, they are the same as in the wild. Although here, too, the question is-and GMO silkworm-breeding can be considered the result of domestication or not?
Well, and most importantly-who is “we”, and how much do you need to know to be “enough”? Scientists, ordinary people, or those who keep pets?
I will specify the following animals:�
Zebu (ancestor-wild Indian bull). Purpose: meat, milk, leather, hides, works, plowing, pergamine, blood, transport, soil fertilization, show business .
Alpaca (ancestor-vicuna from the Camelid family). Purpose: fiber, meat, �pets, show business.
Domestic guinea fowl (ancestor-common guinea fowl, Africa). Purpose: meat, eggs, pest control, alarm system (screams like a cut, if anything), pets, show business.
Domestic fox (ancestor-black-brown fox, USSR). Purpose: the same functions as dogs, but the behavior is closer to that of a cat. As a result of domestication, the appearance changed – a twisted tail, hanging ears, white spots on the coat.
