2 iffy weasel ........under synonyms for retreat(reverse)and a motor vehicle for snow with caterpillar tracks?
Question Author
Thanks mallyh but I have got weasel for another clue which is definitely right. I am wondering if No.3 could be voles (although the fact that this is plural makes it dubious). Up against it = V and then another word for only is sole (anag = oles) making voles!
But where does France come in?
3 best I could get for 3 is CIVET- anagram of V for versus/up against +IT +CE (French for this but doesn't mean only or IN (en) in French)
3 This will probably sound daft, but there's a saying, 'up against the wall'.
The wall in French is ' le mur'
I don't think that is daft, I think that is excellent, Elliemay!
Question Author
It certainly isn't daft ellieMay1 that is brilliant! I am convinced that is right!! Well done and thanks.
Question Author
Amazing that jj109 and I posted exactly the same response elliemay1 at the same time. We clearly both think you're a genius! Sleep well.
Awh, thank you both, you're very kind!
Question Author
So just no.2 to get now - no suggestions so far!
Lemur is so simple when you see it. Can I also say well done elliemay
For 2 I thought of CAR reversed but can't justify the rest of RACoon
Question Author
Kind of you fiction - yes elliemay1 was a real star (still is I am sure!). I will think on racoon (just going out with dogs!) and I don't have it anywhere else in the quiz.
2 iffy turtle ........turn turtle
Question Author
Thanks mallyh - another one to think about. I was wondering about cougar but can't parse it. Whilst out I was thinking it might be another word for smooth reversed inside a car,bus,van etc but have got nowhere.
3 Le mur ( the wall)
It can't be Raccoon as that's 7 letters.
Sorry missed all previous answers
Question Author
Actually angie55 raccoon can be spelt with only one "c" but I don't think it is that anyway!
I was thinking of 'howler' but can't fully parse.
Howl=sound, a howler is a monkey and a car
