Thought I might a share a recent tweet from the creator of High Valyrian, David J. Peterson (dedalvs), regarding animal names in High Valyrian. I recognize most of them, but are they all currently in the course?

Let's see: I remember jaos, keeli, zokla, anne, qintir, keelio, uees and zaldriizes. (Which pretty much matches your recollection, I guess.) Oh, and - not included in the tweet - qaedar (whale).

It's nice to learn a few more animal names, though.

You forgot klios (fish). ;)

Other animal names included in the course and not in the tweet, from my recollection, are: bēgor (trout) vōlī (raven) vandis (bull)

I can't remember if there are any others. Hmm...

At least one more: uulio (falcon), another hontes (bird) :)

I'm not sure if volii is correct, though, I think it might be voljes, but I may be wrong.

Another animal name I can think of is turgon (worm) but I'm quite sure that's not in the course.

I just noticed turgon is in the 'Tips and notes' for the comitative skill. Also kyno (silkworm).
