A synopsis of recent insights into domestic animals

(in no particular order)

Perhaps the main function of the donkey has been to shape the ancestral wild asses into a form (https://luckythreeranch.com/site/wp-content/uploads/Romulus_and_Cara02.jpg) suitable for interspecific hybridisation (with the horse).

One of the most puzzling aspects of the llama and alpaca is their absence from the pampas of Buenos Aires Province (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buenos_Aires_Province#/media/File:Buenos_Aires_Province_in_Argentina_(+Falkland).svg) at the time of European arrival.

The black-and-tan pattern of the domestic dog may be the wild-type colouration (https://www.facebook.com/KelpieHungary/photos/2643922185661473) of an extinct, jackal-like species distinct from the wolf.

The donkey (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K6arOJijpEo and https://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photo-donkey-face-green-summer-pasture-ears-back-image42747898 and https://www.pinterest.com.au/pin/267753140321010215/ and https://www.enstarz.com/articles/123259/20151129/amazing-stories-you-would-not-believe-these-two-animals-are-best-of-friens-video.htm and https://www.alamy.com/brown-wild-burro-in-the-black-hills-in-south-dakota-with-eyes-closed-and-mouth-open-image402045730.html) may be convergent with the moose (https://www.gettyimages.com.au/detail/news-photo/staff-photo-by-fred-j-field-mon-mar-10-2003-maine-game-news-photo/481158351?adppopup=true and https://marydonahue.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/nps-photo-agitated-moose-when-a-moose-is-stressed-it-will-lay-its-ears-back-along-its-head-and-its-hackles-will-rise.jpg and https://www.alamy.com/cow-moose-squinting-with-ears-back-image333665017.html and https://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photo-two-young-moose-elk-alces-alces-flatten-ears-arguing-flattening-green-surroundings-forest-image94341624) in displaying an auricular semet in antagonism.

Selective breeding of the dingo has altered the infantile/juvenile colouration (https://www.ladbible.com/news/latest-ultra-rare-pure-bred-alpine-dingo-puppy-discovered-in-australia-20200922) instead of the adult colouration.

Canis differs from Felis in that the fang-baring is an adult expression in the former (https://www.reddit.com/r/photoshopbattles/comments/53hzgl/psbattle_snarling_jackal/) but already developed in infancy in the latter (https://www.alamy.com/stock-image-cougar-and-snarling-25-month-old-kitten-puma-concolor-montana-usa-162697079.html).

Further selective breeding of the domestic cat could, in principle, produce a breed with warning colouration on the inner foreleg (https://www.mindenpictures.com/stock-photo-african-wild-cat-felis-lybica-adult-walking-kalahari-gemsbok-national-naturephotography-image80038718.html).

The dingo and the Maasai donkey are convergent in that neither conforms to the categories wild, domestic or feral, and both can instead be called domensal.

The Catalan breed of the donkey has the first recorded instance of an anthropogenic frontal bleeze (https://www.shutterstock.com/nb/image-photo/funny-black-donkey-white-tummy-nose-1583673382).
