With the word zoology on the same line, my context was already switched to
cock = the male of Gallus domesticus
tit = bird of the Paridae family
beaver = Castor fiber on the right side of the pond, Castor canadensis on
the wrong side of the pond
I am not a native English speaker so I always interpret those words in the
zoological sense and I have great trouble with their double entendre.
