Actually, they sort of do - the goal is to breed most effectively. Being sentient is a massive advantage in that respect, which means that any sentient species will be able to stop another from evolving in the same area. If they then start developing tools, they can easily wipe out any other sentients across the globe, since memetics is several orders of magnitude faster than biological evolution.
