Animal to animal (Posted on 2015-03-27) Difficulty: 3 of 5
By removing a single letter from the word fox one gets a name of another animal i.e. ox.

Can you accomplish a similar task (i.e. convert one animal into another)
by removing two consecutive letters? ?
By removing three consecutive letters? ?
Four ?
Five ?
