Alligator is caimán in Spanish. But I don't know what caiman is in Spanish, it's similar to, but not quite, an alligator/crocodile.

At least in Argentina:

Lizard=Lagartija

Alligator=Lagarto

Caimán=Caiman

Crocodile=Cocodrilo

There is no way we can use the word Lagarto for a lizard, a Lagarto can kill you, a Lagartija can't.

As an argentinian, I can say this is partially wrong. Lizard is lagarto, properly speaking, although lagarto could be used for alligators as well. Lagartijas are a specific type of small lizards.

In Spain we think of lagartos are lagartijas, but they are Komodo Dragons too and anything with that shape with different sizes

Perhaps use the yellow bars. Otherwise very easy to score some points just by naming common animals at random.

I thought coqui was Spanish for frog until I looked it up and realized it is a type of frog in Puerto Rico. I learned the song "El Coqui" in Girl Scouts and sang it to my children as a lullaby, never knowing its origin. Now I do, and it's probably stuck in my head the rest of the day. (I'll probably sing myself to sleep.)

I have spoken Spanish since I was a kid, and I have never heard of the Spanish translation for jellyfish - Medusa. That isn't saying it is wrong from where I lived, it just shows me that in all the time I lived in Central America, I survived without needing to know the Spanish word for jellyfish!
