Quiz Description

I give you the order (and its English "translation"), you tell me the common name of the extant mammal associated with it! (Where more than one answer is possible, only one answer is required.)

Please note that I think this is a very hard quiz, especially because sometimes the English phrase will be totally unhelpful or even deceptive! Your big hint is that a lot of these are odd or specialized mammals, as the quiz does not include the carnivorans, rodents, or even- and odd-toed ungulates. That's a lot of the mammals you know and love, but those four orders are too broad and too easy for this quiz. Maybe next I'll do families or genera...
