I put Η μαϊμου δεν είναι ερπετό which was marked wrong. Does Η μαϊμου only refer to monkeys and Ο πίθηκος to apes or is Η μαϊμου an acceptable alternative? Thanks :-)

Η μαϊμού is not accepted as an alternative of πίθηκος and it is taught in Animals 2.

I'm typing this on an English keyboard and am usually successful finding the "correct" letters to use in place of the Greek ones, however, I'm not having much success with this one. I write the answer "Ο πίθηκος δεν είναι ερπετό" like this: "O pithikos den einai erpeto" ("den" works for other answers, even though I know it's pronounced "then"), and I can't figure out where my mistake is.
