Animals That CANNOT Be Domesticated

If you’re an animal lover, then you probably think that all animals deserve to be on this Earth and should be protected. However, not animals are equal when it comes to whether we should own them as pets or not. Here are some animals that have not been domesticated, even if people already made them pets.

7. Wallaroo
Wallaroos are smaller than kangaroos and bigger than wallabies. There are different types of wallaroo. The common wallaroo is the best-known species and live widespread around Australia. The black wallaroo is the smallest of all the wallaroos, only growing to 38 inches or 70 centimeters. Wallaroos are legal to own in some parts of the United States. They have proved to be loving and curious pets and seem to bond quickly with their owners. However, they are not domesticated and are still considered wild animals.

6. Bonobo
The bonobo, also called the pygmy chimpanzee, is native to the Congo Basin in Central Africa. Bonobos are omnivorous and live mostly in forests. Scientists note that bonobos behave in a rather peaceful manner, though males will react with hostility to other males outside of their community. Bonobos showed they are also self-aware, like many great apes, and communicate through vocalizations and facial expressions. Even with their similarity to humans, chimpanzees have caused injury and fatalities to humans before.

5. Skunk
The first thing you think of when associating a skunk as a pet would probably be the smell in your home. Skunk owners want people to know that this really isn’t a big deal because skunks only release foul odors as a defense mechanism. If they feel safe and unthreatened, the air will be stink-free. Skunks are technically not domesticated. The most significant difference between a wild skunk and a domesticated one is that domesticated skunks no longer have a scent gland because their owners had it surgically removed. Some believe this is unethical. Should the skunk escape into the wild, they are vulnerable and have no means of protecting themselves.

4. Serval
The serval is a cat and looks similar to a domesticated feline. Just remember that the serval is actually a wild one. This feline is native to Africa and is active in both the day and night. Like many pet cats, servals prefer solitude and minimal social interaction. Humans already own servals as pets, though rarely because many locales make it illegal to own one. Servals look like small leopards, only weighing between 26 to 40 pounds or 11.8 to 40 kilograms and measuring 21 to 26 inches or 53 to 66 centimeters. They have been bred with domestic cats before, though people are still advised against owning pure servals.

3. Elephant
Here are other ideas that are important to differentiate. People are capable of training elephants, but a trained elephant is not the same as a domesticated one. We have been training elephants for over 3,000 years, yet elephants are still not domesticated. Any kept as pets would still be considered an “exotic pet.” To domesticate such beasts, humans would need to breed them over at least 12 generations selectively. Elephants are highly intelligent and emotionally-aware animals. Even with training, they have a willful mind of their own and can act unpredictably.

2. Tiger
Yes, people keep tigers as pets. Should they? That’s debatable. Let’s look at the facts. Tigers are strong. They can take down animals that weigh 500 pounds or 226 kilograms. Male tigers behave in an extremely territorial manner and love spraying their urine everywhere to signify what belongs to them. Tigers require lots of space to run, climb, and jump. Many know have escaped their enclosures before. Tiger cubs aren’t as dangerous, though their “play bites” can be powerful enough to hurt or kill a person
