The place to talk. "On topic"? "Off topic"? We make no such petty distinctions here.

Wordplay Wednesday (June 30, 2014)

Postby Neel Mehta » Tue Jul 01, 2014 12:44 pm

From this blog post:

What about an even littler puzzle? It’s time for an early round of Wordplay Wednesday! I’m traveling this month with my family and this was inspired by a recent visit to a favorite city.

There’s a major world city whose name, when spelled backward, can be split into two words that are both animals. In fact, both are cold-blooded little creepy-crawlies that might leave you with a sore finger if you’re not careful around them. What’s the city?

I won't answer because I'm a bit spoiled by

Ken's Twitter feed, where he mentions the country.

If recent trade rumors pan out, this city will also be the home of another creepy-crawly who might leave you with a sore shoulder if you're not careful.

I had to cheat on this one. As a small hint, I'll mention that in my opinion, one of the two creatures is a little more obscure than the other and is maybe not quite a household name.

Edited to add: As a further hint, in the spoiler below, I tell you what continent the city is in.
