Creepy Beasts Inc.

At Creepy Beasts Inc., three of the most dreaded animals, a tiger, a wolf, and a bear, sat in their boardroom in silence while they awaited their boss. Then, Mr. Tiger broke the silence.

“Isn’t it odd that our three surnames are the same as our three species, yet none of our surnames matches our own species?”

The wolf replied, “Yeah, but does anyone care?”

They sat in silence again…

Can you figure out the surname of each animal?

Since the wolf replied to Mr. Tiger, his surname can be neither Tiger nor Wolf. Therefore, the wolf’s surname is Mr. Bear. Subsequently, Mr. Tiger must be a bear, and finally, Mr. Wolf must be a tiger.
