    Animals need to be social to me domesticated, but cats aren't social at all yet they have been domesticated for such a long time. How does that last point on foxes make any sense?

    Dear Animalogic, please look into the jungle fowl in the U.S. Because there as been so much cross breeding and interaction with domestic jungle fowl in Asia, there is one of the most genetically pure populations of jungle fowl existing in the U.S. in GEORGIA. I believe around Savannnah but do not quote me on that. Fascinating, weird, and awesome...just like Animalogic ;)

    6:15 - Bullshit. The author of that study literally spent his entire life debunking it afterwards, because it's not true and just gets regurgitated ad nauseum. That behavior ONLY came out in captivity. In the wild, wolves have no such hierarchical structure.

    Some deer populations are domesticated, in Japan there are even wild born ones which are human friendly due to religious reasons like in Nara, where they will bow to you (they get food for this from humans) but will go back into the forest when they are not hungry anymore

    “Rule number six is that the species has to be social, but foxes aren’t” Foxes are a species in the canidae family (is dog family) filling the ecological role of a cat. I don’t think fox domestication is as out there as it may appear.

  62. dmlp103

    dmlp103Month ago

    ehhhh she kinda used the alpha theory here which, as they've even said in another animalogic video, that was debunked. Wolves don't have an "alpha" they have mom and dad, making young, inexperienced wolves wanting food easy to sway as they want food and need guidance. Humans kept puppy like traits in their dogs, making them curious and easy to train because they Want to learn, they didn't make them "subservient", they made them childlike. So it's a bit more complicated. I'm disappointed they'd use alpha theory, but alas, it made a shorter video i suppose...

    In Nova Scotia, Canada we have several local examples of people domesticating moose. Mostly to use for logging instead of draft horses. It certainly wasn't common, and moose aren't nearly as common on the mainland as they used to be. But it did happen around here in limited examples
