Top 10 Species Where the Female is BossMetal_Treasure Some animals are matriarchal and females are the leaders that dominate.
The Top Ten
They live in groups called pods and orca pods are led by matriarchal females. Female orcas at 35+ years of age are more likely to lead the pack (younger orcas has no the needed knowledge and experience, and are more involved in reproduction).
Killer whales can live 90 years and have the longest post-reproductive lifespan among the animals, excluding humans. - Metal_Treasure
This is one of the reasons what makes (real-life) spotted hyenas awesome. Definitely not henchmen nor comic-relief trios, for sure!
According to many, it has the most powerful bite of all mammals. And in this species, the female is the larger, stronger, and dominant gender.
Spotted hyenas live in clans (about 100 hyenas in a clan) where the social groupings are so much in favor of the females that an adult male newcomer ranks below cubs belonging even to a low ranking female. - Metal_Treasure
Their groups have a strong social hierarchy - mongoose groups are headed up by an alpha female who holds the sole breeding rights among all of the females in her colony. Other females are not permitted to breed, they are only allowed to assist in raising the young born to the dominant female mongoose. If other females do breed, their young may be killed to maintain the social hierarchy.
The rank of the alpha male is much lower - he's a guard in charge of territorial defense and may act as a sentinel. - Metal_Treasure
They live in insect-like colonies governed by a dominant queen (similar to bees and termites).
The queen is the only breeding female in the colony, preventing all other females from breeding through very aggressive dominance. - Metal_Treasure
Only females are aggressive predators and blood sucking agents of attack.
Males feed on plant juices... - Metal_Treasure
Males can even be victims of sexual cannibalism... eaten by the female. If this isn't a female dominance, I don't know what is. - Metal_Treasure
