Anywhere you look, there is diversity from the people that you see, the plants, to the different animals around you. In terms of animals, nature has concocted its own rules between preys and predators. Though the both of them can co-exist in one environment, each of them is born with innate traits that make them survive against one another. For example, predators need preys to feed on them while preys also possess qualities that let them protect themselves from predators. Troubles often arise when humans disturb the natural order of these animals.
You can expect more or less the same situation when you decide to keep different pets in one place such as your home. Take, for example, bringing home beautiful birds to live with your dogs or cats.

They even come to the point of killing and eating your sweet and beautiful bird.
