    The term monogamous in the animal, kingdom isn quite correct. It means that they pair with a single mate but just like with humans, cheating takes place; most "monogamous" species through genetic testing have been found to be quite the contrary. The only known monogomous animal (via genetic testing of nearby populations) is the water vole.
