You should accept the name of the order--Reptilia--as well as "reptile", given how the question is phrased.

"larger relative" is a bit ambiguous as they're all crows. Rooks are smaller than Carrion Crows but larger than Jackdaws. Maybe "largest member of the crow family" is better?

I tried "Rudolph" three times before I had to accept it wasn't accepted. I think it should be accepted!

Ravens are a type of crow, so "large crow species" would make more sense than essentially saying a raven is larger than itself.

You call tell them apart by the number of their tail 'pinion' feathers. The difference is really just a matter of a pinion.

Rat is incorrect for plague spreading animal. It was the fleas on the rats that spread the plague, not the rats.

Perhaps the wording should include 'vehicle' that spread the plague. Without the rats -the fleas would have been ineffective to a greater degree.
