Animals survive on their own when born and raised in their natural habitat. Animals can survive on their own when humans have not interfered with their maturing and learning process at their mother side; or in rare cases when human experts go through a lengthy process of reintroducing a captive animal into to their native habitat. Human interference can consist of humans capturing an animal, an animal being born in human captivity, or destroying their habitat. Birds, reptiles, and small mammals can sometimes be released (or release themselves) from human captivity and survive on their own if the habitat is conducive to their natural way of life and they are healthy enough to take care of themselves.
