Could do it in Maori too, though that's more because I'm culturally insensitive and as 'wh' in Maori is pronounced 'eff', the same as 'ph' would be like in English...I get a kick out of anything starting with 'whaka', which is prefixed to verbs. Apparently my view on things is degrading to the Maori language and culture....anyway

ako is learn
whakaako is teach

As a kid I used to watch the news for the sole reason to hear the news present refer to things like Whakapapa...go on, say it out loud....you know you want to....

I'll have a think and play on more wildlife options

Depends on who you talk to. Don't believe the ex, though.

as opposed to the Kiwi version? ;)

I like the one with more than one type of animal.

Wetas? Holy crap, how come I've never heard of those? All they ever gave us to play with in entomology class was Madagascar cockroaches. I mean, I had to learn what I thought was a complete list of family names, and Stenopelmatidae/Anostostomatidae wasn't even one of them.

Maybe they didn't want to give anyone nightmares

But then I'm not a bug person...or a spider person....or snakes...quite frankly those Wetas can just stay in their caves and we'll all be happy

Actually, remove the head and legs and they probably cook pretty much like shrimp, unless nature gave them some ill-tasting defense from birds.
