Well, in Latin America, cola might also mean "bum" although perhaps not in the whole, which is, as far as I see, the given translation.

Cola has several meanings: tail, white glue, line or queue and sometimes is used to refer to "coke", although, as far as I know, it is more often used in Latin America.

Well, this is again in some places of Latin America. Cola, means tail, really. It might be used as in English "gimme a cola" although I would say it is far from common.

In Spain the common word is trasero. The not so nice word is culo.

I put the correct translation for the tail which is la cola and duolingo marked it wrong. It doesn't give you a way to report it or discuss it,
