Bugs and Cubs (Posted on 2007-05-29) Difficulty: 3 of 5
Twenty creatures have been encoded according to the following rules.

u = a e i o u
b = b d f h k l t
c = c m n r s v w x z
g = g j p q y,

So, for example cucub would represent camel and buuc would represent lion.

Can you solve these? (If you find more than one answer, please let me know!)

I want to add, Josie, that I enjoyed this puzzle.  With a little advantage of seeing it in the queue I took to looking up lists of animals and bugs, and with an encoded excel spreadsheet to assist, assembled an answer, two or three for each cryptically encoded creature.  I was a little, but not overly surprised that others must have done the same as there were solutions posted in just a short time after its appearance.

Keep up the good work in puzzle creation.  Your puzzles (and, yes, Charlie's) is a reason I return to this site and try to provide puzzles myself.
