also i used to think that a goat was a male sheep, a sheep was the female and a lamb was the baby.
similar to how a bull is a male cow or a rooster is a male chicken and a hen is the female.

is there a technical difference among: forest vs. woods vs. jungle (my guess is that a jungle is mostly bushes and vines rather than trees) ?

is there a technical difference among: pond vs. lake vs. sea (i guess a sea is usually bigger but what would be the cutoff -- how many gallons) ?

Puma, Panther, jaguar and cougar are all the same, the name is different per the geographical location. Panther is usually the name used for a black version of the cat.

Male goats are Billys, male sheep is a ram. Female sheep is a ewe, not sure what a female goat is, but baby goats are kids and sheep are lambs.

Jungles indeed have trees- lots of them and they can be quite tall. A jungle is just a forest in the tropical regions.

Pond and lake is a matter of size. Sea is saltwater, not fresh water.

Crocks are smaller than alligators and have a longer and more skinny mouth.
Falcons are smaller than Hawks. Throw in Kestrals too.


....yes, read more....
