    How to use "Mated" in context?

    Mated pairs are creatures who inhabit the same territory, nest, and feed together. They usually remain together for life and are monogamous. Mated pairs often produce nests of three to twelve young, though numbers can vary significantly.

    Mating is first and foremost an ceremony of the heart. The male lands on the back of the female and they often dances briefly before engaging in sexual intercourse. Female choice is not as important as a male's ability to provide for her and the young.

    Due to human interference, the mating habits of many creatures have been altered.
