Certain familiar animals architectures go feral easily and successfully, while others are much less inclined to wander and usually fail promptly outside domestication.
Some species architectures will detach readily from humans and pursue their own devices, but do not stray far or spread readily. Others depart and are gone, seeking out new territory or range to exploit and displaying active invasiveness.
Whether they leave readily and venture far, the ultimate criterion for success is longevity. Persistence depends on their ability to establish themselves and reproduce reliably in the new environment.
Tenure of domestication
Neither the duration nor the intensity with which a species an architecture has been domesticated offers a useful correlation with its feral potential.
