Isn't fish acceptable for salmon? The question says what kind of animal, not species of animal.

I have to agree with BlendedCow here...It is obvious that you are looking for salmon, but the way the question is worded would make fish technically a correct answer as well because you haven't specified you are looking for a species, just an animal (which fish can be classified as)...Maybe replace with "...are varieties of what species of animal?" Salmon is technically a family, and the different types are sub-families if you want to get really specific.

Actually, "Flanders" is in three countries: France, Belgium, and the Netherlands. Most is in Belgium. But northern France along the Belgian border is most certainly referred to as "Flandres" http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/209462/Flanders

Weird thing, but I've remembered the name of two humped camels since elementary school because I always think of it as "Back-train" instead of "Bactrian". Like train cars on its back!

Agreed. You don't have to type "golfing" when the answer is "golf" or "basketballing" whent the answer is "basketball"...

But if you know surf, you know surfing, and if surf isn't accepted, it's not gonna hurt you to type three extra letters. The sport is referred to as surfing, not surf. Golf and basketball are golf and basketball, but surfing is surfing, just like curling, bowling, and fencing.

Can we have "Spectrum" be acceptable for colors of the rainbow? I thought of it as the light spectrum, which is basically what it is when viewed through a prism. A rainbow is a large form of viewing the spectrum.

I did commit a typo putting Pessah, but anyways, since Passover is also called Pesakh, Pesach or Pesah, I think it should all be accepted. I don't know if the typo was the problem or the Hebrew name is not included at all.
