Better pic for black widow. But I'm disappointed that you took away some the harder ones including orangutan and human.

@JackintheBox

omg, ok, camels are hoofed creatures with beige/tan/golden-brown fur that is oftentimes thicker around their neck. They also have distinct "humps" on their back and usually live in dry areas.

@FacterLiger0804

He asked for camals, not camels.

Camals are rare sterile hybrids between canals and camels. Camals are much shorter than typical canals and their humps are underdeveloped but they can store water for a long time.

Any chance for just "Spider"? Or is that too vague

That marking identifies it clearly as a particular spider. I don't know if "butterfly" and "fish" are accepted, but I think those too are easy to identify by species.

If nemo would be harder that might be an idea. But sadly I think more people know the word nemo than the actual name for the fish.

It's even more disturbing when you see one in your garage, hiding next to the garage door button you're about to push. I'm not sure which ones I detest more - black widows or brown recluses.

Those spots really look more like a Leopard to me, so that's what I guessed and it was autocorrected to Jaguar, which is pretty silly honestly. They are 2 different species who live separated by a vast ocean. Alright, looked at the source image and it is indeed a Jaguar.

Dec 30, 2020
I realize this comment is two years old, but someone may see it in the future...

The spots (rosettes) on a leopard are empty, while the jaguar has spots within its rosettes. That's an easy way to tell the difference from the coat alone, like in that picture.

Leopards aren't jaguars. I know people usually confuse them. But if the animal's a jaguar, you shouldn't accept an animal that's NOT a jaguar as the answer.

Jaguars and Leopards are different right? Different habitats and ecosystem, which puzzles me why leopard was accepted for jaguar. :P maybe I'm just nitpicking
