Match the animals, three by three

Beagle
Dalmatian
Dog
Pug
Puppy
Retriever


Accipitridae
Anura
Arthropod
Castor
Gastropoda
Poecilia

Instructions

There are two lists, each containing six items. The lists are currently in alphabetical order. You may rearrange the order of any given list.

Create a third list and thus match all the lists in groups of three.

Building off of Matthew Jensen's answer:

Beagle Accipitridae Eagle
Dalmation Arthropod Crustacean (Previous guess: Exclamation Damsel)
Dog Anura Frog
Pug Gastropod Slug
Puppy Poecilia Guppy
Retriever Castor Beaver

Where:

Each of the second columns is a scientific classification (Kingdom, Phylum, Class, Order, Family, etc) containing an animal in the third column which rhymes with an animal in the first column.

  • $\begingroup$ Well done! It seems so obvious now what the third list is... $\endgroup$ Nov 25, 2020 at 19:58

A Partial answer (maybe)

Found possible pairings for 5/6 words
- Beagle & Accipitridae (super-category of (B)Eagle)
- Dalmatian (spotted dog) & Poecilia (spotted fish)
- Dog & Anura (Frog, both end with 'og')
- Pug & Arthropod (Bug, both end with 'ug')
- Puppy & Gastropoda (slugs & snails & puppy dogs' tails, from the nursery rhyme 'What are Little Boys Made of?')

I have no idea what the third list would be, though...

  • $\begingroup$ You are on the right track. Your 1 and 3 are correct. They also contain the correct elements of the third list. Your 4 looks plausible but it won't fit if you get the others all correct. $\endgroup$ Nov 24, 2020 at 21:43
