I kept wanting it to be a tuna as well, so I was trying "whitetail", which I think my brain amalgamated from several different types of sushi.

Why isn't wildebeest spelled with a "beast" at the end? And why do I always think it is? I'm surprised no one has complained about that not being an accepted spelling.

Jk, apparently it is an accepted spelling. Never mind me.

Because it's not really English, it's Afrikaans, which comes from Dutch and there it's "beest". It does mean beast though.
