Twenty creatures have been encoded according to the following rules.

u = a e i o u
b = b d f h k l t
c = c m n r s v w x z
g = g j p q y

So, for example cucub would represent camel and buuc would represent lion.

Can you solve these? (If you find more than one answer, please let me know!)

Hi Karan,

Many thanks for replying.Of course you can claim a perfect score!

gucgubuc is a pangolin, which I must admit is a bit obscure.

gucubbu can also represent gorilla and gazelle; cubcu - zebra; ubbuc - otter;  cuucu - moose.

Best wishes,

Josie
