Main Question or Discussion Point

Many domesticated animals like dogs and cats get matted fur and humans take measures to un-mat it. Generally speaking, do non-domesticated animals get mats in their fur? - or are they adapted not to get them or remove them? If they do get mats, are the mats harmful?
