At Creepy Beasties Inc., three of the most dreaded animals, a spider, a snake, and a rat, sat in their boardroom in silence while they awaited their boss. Then, Mr. Spider broke the silence.
“Isn’t it odd that our surnames match our species, yet none of our surnames match our own?”
The snake replied, “Yeah, but does anyone care?”
They sat in silence again…
Can you figure out the surname of each animal?
Since the snake replied to Mr. Spider, her surname can’t be neither Spider nor Snake. Therefore, the snake’s surname is Mr. Rat. Subsequently, Mr. Spider must be a snake, and finally, Mr. Snake must be a rat.
