Antropomorphic should be ok for the robot question?

anthropomorphic means in the (general) form of a human but not necessarily for robots. Like Chuck E. Cheese in anthropomorphic but so are the animals in Zootopia. Android is the term used to refer only to robots designed to look (almost exactly) like humans (like the terminator or Data from Star Trek). Hope this helps.

Then it was a mistranslation. 'Bambino' was a word long before Babe Ruth. Or baseball. Or the U.S. Maybe even before the concept of an organised sport.

Like the word "baby" it might well be applied to other things, but when an Italian looks at a baby they only say "bambino".

I'd always been taught that an umbrella is for protection from rain whereas a parasol is for protection from the Sun. It seems maybe the definitions are a bit looser than that these days but I think sunshade should work

A parasol might well not be waterproof, whereas an umbrella always is. They may look similar in design, but their nouns are not synonyms.

Not even close. A grown male Komodo Dragon weighs around 70 kg while a grown male Saltwater Crocodile can weigh over 1000 kg and they're also twice as long. Maybe you mixed that up with the Komodo Dragon being the largest lizard.

I'm pretty sure there were larger animals than the mammoth in the pleistocene, including the Giant Ground Sloth (Megatherium) or the much larger Paraceratherium, which is in fact, the largest mammal to have ever lived. However, I believe they recently found fossils of a larger straight tusked elephant from Asia but I'm not sure if that has been confirmed to be the largest mammal. EDIT: Okay, it seems I was mistaken, and Para's are actually from the oligocene, but I'm still not sure about the mammoth.

So true! The German version is better anyway. I don't know much German but I know the words "Luftwaffe" and "Lufthansa" which both relate to airplanes, so that's how I guessed the answer.
