Am I mistaken or names for some animal species in English are differentated according to sex of an animal and some are not, (mare and stallion but only male cat and female cat) Why is that? Intuition would tell me that the first group received special names thanks to their importance for humans (domestication, hunting). Do you know of any pages or books where I could find more about it?
Here is information on names of animals by gender: Male, female and baby animal names - Kids - Christchurch City Libraries
As you can see, the list is quite extensive.
