An animal name which starts with “U”

At lunch a comment was made that an animal whose name starts with "u" would be a much more difficult challenge than one which starts with "z". So other than "urchin", what ideas do you have?

    The only thing I can think of is "uakari", which is a type of monkey, with a particularly florid face.

    If you mean common name, then urchin doesn't count since they're always referred to as sea urchins. 🙂

    On the other hand, if you're refering to their scientific name there's:

    ursidae (bears)
    uca pugnax (Atlantic marsh fiddler)
    unionidaes (a family of mollusks)
    urocyon littoralis (island gray fox)

    I didn't see anything that could be a real challenge except a few snakes in the mix. Maybe the fact that many of these animals are small can be challenge?
