The Twelve Days of Christmas Contest - Day 2

A Turtle-Dove...?
On the Second Day of Christmas 
my true love gave to me
Two Turtle Doves 
and a Partridge in a Pear Tree

Prize! Limited-Edition
Someone Else's Life
fridge magnet!
Whoever thought of the name turtle dove? A dove looks nothing like a turtle, right? 
But can you name the other animals whose names are derived from two other animals from the clues below? 
Answer for fun in the comment box below - or if you've got all twelve click here to email them to me to win a prize!

1) Eight-legged creepy crawly + long-tailed primate!
2) Fire-breathing buzzing insect
3) Sea mammal - with a trunk!
4) Purring sea creature
5) Male cow - dwelling on lily-pads!
6) King of the jungle - under the sea!
7) Equine - with wings!
8) Woolly farm animal - that barks!
9) Large stripy cat - with a dorsal fin!
10) Small garden bird - also bird of prey
11) Cunning bushy-tailed forest canine
12) Barking sea-creature!

Good luck - and have fun!

Hmm some of these are tricky!
I like the male cow dwelling on lily pads! Funny mental picture!
Still trying to work out #10 though!

No 6 - sea lion?

Katie said...

Ooh almost, Jenny! But both parts of the word need to be names of animals! (hint: the description is always in the right order so the animal described first is the first half of the answer)
