Oops, I didn't mean to imply that all senses of all those words were
synonymous in all cases. "Mudpuppy" is a fun word that means different
things to different people and in some cases overlaps with other words for
the same species, and different words with other species, per DARE. This
happens a lot with critters and plants.
