Animal Houses

Humans often build "houses" for domestic or wild animals, often resembling smaller versions of human domiciles. Familiar animal houses built by humans include bird-houses, hen-houses/chicken-coops and doghouses (kennels); while housed agricultural animals more often live in barns and stables. However, human interest in building houses for animals does not stop at the domestic pet. People build bat-houses, nesting-sites for wild ducks and other birds, bee houses, giraffe houses, kangaroo houses, worm houses, hermit crab houses, as well as shelters for many other animals.

Famous quotes containing the words houses and/or animal:

    The new American finds his challenge and his love in the traffic-choked streets, skies nested in smog, choking with the acids of industry, the screech of rubber and houses leashed in against one another while the townlets wither a time and die.
    John Steinbeck (1902–1968)

    I am afraid that the animals regard man as a creature like themselves which has lost its sound animal wits in a most dangerous way—that they regard him as the deranged animal, as the laughing animal, as the weeping animal, as the unhappy animal.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)
