Varying Gender Forms

Are there some animals that don't have differing forms? I cant seem to find the opposite genders for things like cochon, dauphin, souris, etc.

Yes, some animals take the same name as their gender peers.

Cochon, cochonne

Dauphin, dauphine

Souris it is the same for both genders

No Lynn323053, in French we say dauphin femelle, not dauphine for the dolphin.
