Animals are everywhere. If we think about their impact on human life, they can be food or pets. They can also be used to earn money and many people live with them as family members. The ecology of animals is essential. Bees and butter are pollinators. They provide food for wildlife, livestock, and us. The natural pest control of insects is provided by snakes and cats, as well as rodents, and cat-rats. Here’s a list of useful animals for mankind.


Bovidae’s cow is the most valuable animal. According to legend, the domestication of the species began in Turkey 10.500 years ago. This led to the creation of approximately 800 breeds of cattle we now know. There are currently approximately 1 billion cows worldwide. They provide milk, meat, leather, and draft animals. Oxen are cows also known as oxen. They can pull heavy loads and even move the plough in the fields. It can grow to a length of around 8.5 feet and can produce milk when it is happy. On average, it produces 70 pounds of milk each day.


The most useful animal in the world is chicken. They primarily provide two food sources: first, meat (known as chicken) and second, eggs (known as chicken). These birds can be kept as pets or used to breed and lay eggs. They cannot fly, and there are 150 varieties of chickens. The breed is believed to have been derived from the wild Indian Red Junglefowl and the south-east Asian Red Junglefowl. The male chicken species is called a rooster and the female is known as a chick. The young chickens are called ‘chicks’, ‘poults’, and the whole group of chickens is called ‘flock.


Horses are an animal species of the horse family. It is believed that wild horses were domesticated in central Asia 5.000 years ago. There are currently 60 million horses worldwide and 300 breeds. They pull heavy loads and transport the plough in the field. Horses are often seen at shows, races, and competitions. A wild horse’s life expectancy is 25 years. Horses were also used by humans to selectively breed horses to make larger horses that could do heavy work. They are also kept as pets. Horses are also used by the Ancient Egyptians, Arabs, and Mongols civilisations.


Dogs are a wonderful creature of God and provide companionship and love to their owners. Researches show that dogs can even boost the immune system. The American Heart Association published a report that dogs can lower blood sugar levels and have many health benefits. Their eyes are considered to be descendants of wolves, and they help boost their oxytocin level. They can also help people get out of deep depression by being companions. Dogs are able to sense time, and studies have shown that they can tell the difference between five and one hour.


The family Bovidae also includes sheep, which is one of the most useful and popular animals to have been domesticated from Asiatic mouflon. Central Asia is believed to have been the first place where sheep were domesticated. There are approximately 1 billion sheep worldwide and we know about 900 breeds of sheep. China has the highest concentration of sheep. They are used as a source of meat, milk and fat, and also for their fleece. It is well-known for its wool, which can be used by humans in all kinds of clothing. The pharmaceuticals and cosmetics industries also use sheep. They are used in science, mainly in stem cell research.


The smallest member of horse family, the donkey, was created from wild horses in Africa and the Middle East 5.000 years ago. They can lift heavy loads and are used to plough in poor countries. Although it is an ancestor to the African wild ass, it is currently listed as critically endangered. It can reach heights of up to 31 inches and weighs in at 180 to 1.060 lbs. They are initially used to protect against coyotes or wolves. They can also be used to bring people down from the mountains.


A domestic animal, the pig is considered to be a subspecies wild boar. The species was domesticated in the Near East between 13.000 and 12.700 years ago. Evidence suggests that domestication of pigs in China dates back to 8.000 years ago. There are currently 500 species of wild pigs and around 2 billion pigs worldwide. They can be used by humans to provide meat, skin, and bristles as well as bones. You can keep miniature pigs as pets. It can grow to approximately 35-71 inches in height and weighs between 110-770 pounds. In the wild, species live for 6-10 years.


Elephants are the largest mammal species on Earth, and they are also the most useful and valuable animals in the world. There are currently three species of elephants that are still alive: the Indian, Savannah, and Forest elephants. They help preserve the ecosystem’s biodiversity and are useful for transporting and labour. Certain species of elephants are endangered due to habitat loss and ivory trade. According to some, the Asian elephants have been useful since the Indus Valley civilization in the third millennium BC. The distribution of seeds for trees is also done by elephants. Toilet bowl scrubbers and shampoo are the main uses of elephants’ tusk.


Camels are one unique and useful animal that starts with a letter C. There are currently two types of camels: one Dromedary with one hump, and one Bactrian with two. While both types can be domesticated however, the wild Bactrian wasl is at risk of extinction. The camel can reach heights of up to 7 feet and can weigh up to 1500 pounds. Camels can haul heavy loads up 300 km per day. Camels’ milk is rich in iron, minerals, and vitamins. It can travel at speeds of up to 40 miles an hour.


Bovidae’s goat is one of the most useful and versatile animals. It is believed to be a descendant from a wild goat called Bezoar Ibex, which was mainly found in eastern Europe and southwest Asia. It is a good source of meat, dairy and skin for at least 9.000 years. There are currently 300 goat breeds known to humanity and 924 million goats living around the world. It can grow to approximately 16-42 inches tall and weigh approximately 20-250 pounds. Cashmere goats produce the finest fibre, and the wool is considered to be the best in the world. Boots, gloves, and other products can also be made from goat skin. Chevon is the name for goat meat and is often compared to lamb meat.
