WildlifeUsually refers to large wild animals such as mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians living in a natural environment. The term is generally not used to describe smaller animals like insects. Animals or their progeny that were once domesticated but escaped captivity and are running wild (i.e. feral animals) such as horses, burros and hogs are not considered wildlife.
