This was highlighted in a tw**t from Tamsin Edwards, via Matthew Cobb. It’s accurate, as far as I know.
I love “Meerschweinchen” (“little ocean pig”) as the name for guinea pig. Where did that come from? And “Lazy animal” for “sloth” is great.
Which reminds me of a story: A city girl was visiting a farm for the first time, and, given a tour, saw a group of pigs around their trough, noisily slurping their slop. “Ewww!”, she said. “No wonder they call them pigs!”
