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

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.
