"Animals in Polish - Zwierzęta po polsku": a new TinyCards deck on the block

I recently made this card deck: https://tiny.cards/decks/cdbe928f-9947-41db-b422-58850a7a3177 . Any suggestions about which new animals could I add to it? Dziękuję!! (thanx!!).

I've just added chrząszcz, surykatka, kaczka, meduza and pingwin. More coming soon (not much time, though). Most of the mammals suggested by mihxal were already in my other deck: https://tiny.cards/decks/ee0728ed-2aad-441e-bed2-da111c96c119 but I think I'll eventually have to add most of them to the general animals deck, so your list is quite handy! (I don't have immediate access to some of the Polish letters! :)

That's a cool idea, but if I might suggest something... I checked it out and it looks like a deck for Polish people learning animals in English. That is, I see a photo of an octopus and the app wants me to actually write "Octopus" in English and not "Ośmiornica"... I don't think that was the intention? ;)

EDIT: I just opened it again and it seems right. I don't know what's going on, but I haven't used TinyCards almost at all...

EDIT2: It seemed correct and then at the end again I saw a photo of an Octopus and it counted writing "ośmiornica" wrong. And also it once asked me to actually type "Octopus". It seems that sometimes I see the animal and the English word and it's okay, but if I just see the animal, it asks me for the English word...

Well, the intention is actually double. It can also be helpful for Polish speakers wanting to learn English... or even to check English spelling. I think I should change the title, though. Thanks for your feedback, Jellei!!

If you see the animal pic with a blank over it, English is required. If you see the animal with the English word, Polish is required. If you see the Polish word, either the English word or the pic is required.

OK, I see it, but... that makes it quite confusing, so I would personally think that it would be better to make just a 'one-way' quiz which doesn't ask you to write English words apart from when you translate the Polish word.

Yes, I thought about that too and made some tests at the beginning but I didn't get the system to make what I meant... Now I know better about the "cogs and cranks" of it so I may adapt it or remake it later on. Dziekuje bardzo! :)

I've just made Polish the only field required but now you won't hear the Polish word spoken except when the card is introduced for the first time or when you just overview the whole deck and click on the corresponding loudspeaker... :( The problem happens because of the pictures... I wouldn't mind removing the pics but I actually keep them because many people doesn't know what a chamois, a hyrax, a vole, a pangolin, etc look like... I guess I'll leave it like that for a while and I'll probably change it back to the way it used to be sooner or later. Anyway, I greatly appreciate your feedback, Jellei. =)

75 animals added to the deck so far. Quite a big bunch of mammals and not few birds still missing but I guess I'll reach 100 cards in a few days.
