Make CARP (fish) evolve into GOAT (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 NEWT (amphibian) and CROW (bird). No word can be used more than once.

CARP ----> NEWT ----> CROW ----> GOAT
