Animal names are not very frequently used words. They may appear only one time in the Bible, and as a result, their exact identification is not easy. Not many classical Hebrew texts exist. The Bible is basically it. So if a word only occurs once in the Bible, it can be hard to pin down its meaning. Older translations would go off of the traditional ...

I would suggest the "Hoffnung für alle" translation. "Hoffnung für alle" is very commonly used in Germany (especially by young people, because it's easier to read than for example Luther's translation) Greetings from Germany ;)

What Jesus means is to crucify our "old man" ie. our flesh. Paul talks about this. That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts; Eph 4:22 (KJV) We are to crucify (put off) the old man.
