That's a puzzle of this type. I suppose that drawing a diagram like on this page (sorry, it's not in English, but I hope you get the idea of the diagram) is the easiest way to solve. It enables you to just tick off the impossibilities, and in the end the correct combinations will remain (I wonder why there is no such diagram on the English page by the way).

I tried to make a diagram, but still can't come up with the answer. I get that Tara has the iguana, and Tom probably has the tarantula, but I keep getting it all confused.
