Solution to code at UKGE

Code
For all those wonderful people who we inadvertently tortured over the UK Games Expo weekend with the code on our promo cards, here follows the solution.
If you weren’t at UKGE then avert your eyes as we’ll be running a challenge on our Facebook page to see who can crack it first – starting with a picture of the card (and code) this evening & followed by clues every few days.
I’ll leave a gap below before re-listing the 2 clues we gave out at the expo and then one final clue before finally giving the solution:

Clue 3 (not given out at expo): the numbers are grouped in pairs

Solution (see below):

The first number in each pair represents a lane number (with the ostrich in lane 1, polar bear in lane 2, dolphin in lane 3, lion in lane 4, horse in lane 5, elephant in lane 6).
The second number in each pair represents the numbered letter in that name. So the code that starts “53” relates to the 3rd letter in the name of the animal in lane 5 (horse) – so letter “R”.
Following that through, you get to the correct solution – RHINOCEROS (there are also 3 other solutions for cards turn different codes – CROCODILE, ALBATROSS and ANACONDA).
Well done everyone and thanks for your support!
