Well, I am neither savage, nor a chef (though I do cook), but we humans do love our monikers.

Muskoxen aren`t oxen, tasmanian devils aren`t devils (so don`t try to banish them back to the burning pits of hell)

@ Gerry: Here`s an interesting tidbit. Starlings have pointy heads and beaks, pointy wings, and pointy tails. Elizabethans dubbed them *starlings* because in flight viewed from below they look like little four-pointed stars.

They were introduced into the U.S. by a Victorian chucklehead who released 60 of them in New York`s Central Park. He thought it would be nice if all the birds mentioned in Shakespeare`s plays could be found on the American continent. They`ve been raiding my birdfeeder ever since. *face paw*

Common Boobie:



You might say: But that`s a Blue Footed Boobie, but NO! It was named "common" because it`s feet were NOT bright blue or yellow. In fact the "common" boobie is rare... hence the misleading name! :-)

Also, it`s not a beewb...

@ 5Cats - it looks like a goat, acts like a goat, walks like a goat...

Add to that the Aardwolf (not a wolf), and Honey badger (not a badger or sweet like honey, in fact they would more likely bite you in the privates!)
