You look up and see some birds (either los pájaros or las aves). Which are typical to say?

Your friend is holding something in his/her hands. You can't see for sure but you are certain it is one of the following:
a lizard (un largato)
a salamander (una salamandra)
a toad (un sapo)
a frog (una rana)
Or maybe you think of it simply as una cosa or un animalito or un bicho, un monstruo, una bestia, etc.
What might you typically say:
¿Qué tienes? Tráemelo.
¿Qué tienes? Tráemela.

In a grammar textbook, I ran across the structure "la + de + nombre + que + verbo (+ sujeto) (+ tiempo o lugar)" as an intensifier. Does this have the same function as "qué de"?
Despite being an assigned topic for a quiz, the topic question will randomly not show up in the quiz. Instead, sometimes there will only be nine questions with no question about "alguien." One cannot answer a question that wasn't there, so I am getting penalized for for not answering a question that wasn't presented. It's kinda hard to reach goals while contending with faulty programming on this question and other questions.
