Basically give the name of an animal (binomial latin name) that starts with the last letter of the one before. You should know about the animal you use. Post a pic and give its vernacular name.

Iguana iguana

The green iguana is a reptile found throughout Central and South America.
While it is not generally an endangered animal in some places, like Belize, it is because of hunting. Large females are the favorite individuals to harvest. Unfortunately, these same individuals are critical to the reproductive success of the species. As a food source, the green iguana is also known as the "Bamboo Chicken".

I suggest the well known, to all plant biologists, bacteria used to transfer genes thanks to its Ti plasmid in plant genome:
