All humans are a group with common ancestry but some humans distinct themselves into sub-groups by "distinctive ancestry" and tend to ask other humans "where are you originally from" as to get a satisfying answer about the other side's "distinctive ancestry".
Asking for a precise meaning of this vague question might bring different "exact" versions such as "where were you born?" (some people were born in a ship or an airplane) or "What is your country"? (some people don't affiliate themselves with any country / "stateless") but in the end it generally boils down to "distinctive ancestry".
Is this tendency of many humans to classify other humans into these groups of two or more families with a "distinctive ancestry" (but not by the general group of humanity and not by nuclear family) exist in animals (of course, not by asking "where are you originally from" but with much more simple or "primitive" ways of communication)?
Do cows/lizards/sheep/squirrels/cats, etc. have a similar classification mechanism?
