    Evolve This!

    Make SHARK (fish) evolve into TIGER (mammal) by changing one letter at a time. Each change must produce a valid word in the English language. But there is a catch. The evolution must go through VIPER (reptile) and RAVEN (bird). No word can be used more than once.

    SHARK ----> VIPER ----> RAVEN ----> TIGER

    Viper to Raven

    Attacking it one stage at a time, here's Viper to Raven:

    <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">VIPER
    RIPER
    RIVER
    RIVEN
    RAVEN</span hide>
    Waggers
    If at first you do succeed, you&#39;ve probably missed something.

    I (mistakenly) pre-empted your reply saying you'd done it in 3!
