Masculine and Feminine of Animals

Gender is a range of characteristics of femininity and masculinity. Grammatical gender is defined as a system of noun classification. In languages with grammatical gender, every noun must pertain to one category called gender. The different genders form a closed set of usually 2 or 3 divisions, in which all the nouns are included. Very few items can belong to several classes at once. Common gender divisions include: masculine, feminine, neuter, animate, or inanimate.
