They're both. If you've been to the park, one of the trivia facts they tell you is that the Everglades is the only place on earth that has BOTH crocodiles and alligators.

The American alligator and the American crocodile are two separate species. The American alligator has wider jaws and all of its upper teeth overlap its bottom teeth.

What is a cod? Are you thinking of COD as in the fish? If so that's just an an acronym for catch of the day. There is no such thing as a "cod" fish.

Surely gravy is getting confused with the infamous 'Cash On Delivery' fish, known across the northern Atlantic for its practise of demanding immediate payment for services, though science has yet to discover just what those services might be...

I watched some natives on the Ubangi river bank searching for giant frogs in burrows. One man thrust his arm in a burrow and a dreadful scream issued forth. He then speared into the burrow and pulled out a large frog, which screamed again. It was a terrible sound.

Daddy Longlegs are insects, not spiders! Their two longer 'legs' are actually antennae it uses to feel around.

Actually, there are three kinds of animals called Daddy Long Legs. One is an insect, one a spider, and the one I grew up calling a daddy long legs is an arachnid but not a spider.

I'm pretty sure that arachnids are spiders, but it could be like a square-rectangle thing.

Arachnid is the class containing the orders Spiders, Harvestmen, Scorpions and Mites amongst others.

Anything with 8 legs is an Arachnid but not necessarily a Spider.

In the case of the Harvestmen they only have one body segment, whereas Spiders have two.

I hate to get technical but, Draft horse isn't actually a breed. It's pretty much a word that refers to any large horse used for pulling. Clydesdales and Shires are the most common ones, but there are lots of breeds that are considered to be Draft horses.

It is, of course, sad to see an armadillo that's been hit on the road, but it's also kind of funny. They die like cartoons: on their backs, with 4 legs straight up in the air. All they're missing are the stars for eyes.

Armadillos are invasive in the US, so I don't really mind.

I have no idea how I got armadillo, the only explanation I can think of is that I took this quiz before and didn't directly remember it but had some vague association with it. otherwise it was just a really lucky guess

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought Daddy Long Legs was an arachnid not classified as a spider. I could be wrong, but just in case that threw anybody off, I wanted to let you know.

"Daddy long legs" can refer to a few different things. Different people use it to refer to crane flies (an insect), harvestmen (the non-spider arachnid you're thinking of), or cellar spiders.

Potato cod and lingcod both aren’t cod
