Dogs perform many roles for people, such as hunting, herding, pulling loads,protection, assisting police and military, companionship and, more recently, aiding handicapped individuals.
This influence on human society has given them the sobriquet, "man's best friend".
Cats are similar in anatomy to the other felids, with a strong, flexible body, quick reflexes, sharp
retractable claws, and teeth adapted to killing small prey. Cat senses fit a crepuscular and predatory ecological niche. Cats can hear sounds too faint or too high in frequency for human ears, such as those made by mice and other small animals. They can see in near darkness.
Fish are an important resource for humans worldwide, especially as food. Commercial and subsistence fishers hunt fish in wild fisheries or farm them in ponds or in cages in the ocean. They are also caught by recreational fishers, kept as pets, raised by fish keepers, and exhibited in public aquaria.Fish have had a role in culture through the ages, serving as deities, religious symbols, and as the subjects of art, books and movies.
Reptiles are tetrapod animals from the class Reptilia comprising today's turtles,crocodilians, snakes, amphisbaenians, lizards, tuatara, and their extinct relatives. The study of these traditional reptile groups, historically combined with that of modern amphibians, is called herpetology.
All animals are motile, meaning they can move spontaneously and independently at some point in their lives. Their body plan eventually becomes fixed as they develop, although some undergo a process of metamorphosis later on in their lives. All animals are heterotrophs: they must ingest other organisms or their products for sustenance.
