Separating animals into categories of 'exotic', 'livestock', 'native', 
'working, 'feral' and 'pet' .. this would be area dependant.

Elephants in many areas of the world would be 'exotic' in a few others 
'working', and /or 'native'.

Kangaroos in many areas of the world would be 'exotic' in some others 
'native', yet to see 'livestock' but there is hope.

This does not fit into some easy method of categorising for some drop 
down menu for the world, sorry.

So I think all possible animals may, I say may, be applicable to any 
feature that 'animal' could be used.
