Auto manufacturers frequently use animals as inspiration for names. While many can identify the cars by sight, do you think you can do the opposite and name the cars by seeing a picture of the animal inspiring the name?

Try to be the first to match all twenty of these animals to the car that's named after them without checking out the answers. Only you'll know if you looked ahead and cheated. Good luck! (Hat Tip To David!)
