Sporcle Quiz: AKA Animals

When the incident of the Norway hunter and his zoo-bagged moose (mentioned yesterday) made the news stateside, it caused a little bit of confusion.  In Norway, the animals he shot are called "elk", in the US, they are "moose", and an entirely different animal is called "elk."  This of course led to lots of experts in the comments section denouncing the reporters as idiots, when they were, in fact, correct... in their country.

It can be confusing - lots of animals have several different common names.  Puma concolor has several. In this month's quiz, can you match the two names by which an animal is sometimes referred to?
