This change, programmed and orchestrated by its human captors and keepers, is so profound that it can be said to amount to the first but crucial stage of domestication.

Their reproduction is under their own control. Depending on the species, but generally speaking, the females are responsible for bringing up their young and initiating them into the way of life which is normal for the species to engage in. For example, the young will be taught to hunt if the species is carnivorous; to identify the right plants for foraging if the species is herbivorous; to learn about what constitutes danger; to get to know the terrain within its home range, and so on. Just to cite one example of such education: the mother orang-utan teaches her offspring, from its birth till the age of 7, a whole range of survival skills.
