Formatted for easier consumption:

Note: OP's list was originally condensed into one big blob of unformatted text without new lines for each word pair. I wouldn't have formatted this list had it originally been presented in its current form.

FYI Your work is really worthwhile, for me at least. I prefer not to see the English side too easily. In my paper note books I fold away the English column. Electronically I can separate them but yours saved me a step. Thanks!
And a big Thank You to ECM016, of course.

Gracias, this is a nice list of vocabulary for anyone to remember.

This would be great as a TinyCards deck.

Here it is - I used the bulk upload copy paste method.

Most domestic and "famous" animals have feminine forms: el perro - la perra, el gato - la gata, el león - la leona, el elefante - la elefanta, etc.. Some of them have different forms for male and female animals: el caballo (horse) - la yegua (mare), la oveja (sheep, cf. ewe), el carnero (ram). And there are regional variation: pig is "cerdo", "puerco", "chancho" and "cochino", Guinea pig is "cuy", "cuye", "cuis", "curiel", "cobaya" and "conejillo de Indias".

Thank you for this education! Most lessons almost taught us that the masculine form is the only form.

I hope course constructors would consider this point. It should be really easy to simply show by sentences such as "Tengo dos gatos y tres gatas" or even 3 forms = "I see a bull elephant, a cow elephant, and a little/baby elephant" (please do take care not to generate sentence comments about harem or innuendos though).

I didn’t know that wow!

I have always wondered what the relation between the Butter and the Butterflies is...

ZORRO MEANS FOX!? OMG, I always assumed it's just a fictional name of a fictional character.
