Animal species that are cultivated and domesticated by humans tend to have many different breeds. For example, there are many breeds of horses and cats. However, it's possible that you may be forgetting or are simply unaware of the many breeds of animals. For example, look at the very wide variety of birds....or snakes.......and the list goes on.
