Whiskey Tango Foxtrot!
It was one of the first things I thought of seeing the quiz title. Thought it might be on nr2 but wasnt there either. You could make the description something like: well several ways to describes it size, survival skills, gasmask look, the meaning of the name. I guess "micro-animal who looks like it is wearing a gasmask" or more difficult, whose name means slow walker
Reliable dictionaries confirm this, e.g. https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/cascade
Of dictionaries that are reliable - e.g. Cambridge, Merriam Webster and, yes, Collins - "a single waterfall" is always the first definition and, in most cases, the only noun definition.
The best approach would be to change the clue so that it says "a waterfall, or a series of waterfalls".
Etymology: < French cascade, < Italian cascata fall, < cascare to fall: see -ade suffix.
