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.

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.)
