Jeopardy! Round responses

WORLD GEOGRAPHY
ANIMALS
ACTORS' REAL NAMES
10-LETTER WORDS
(Alex: We paused on 10-LETTER WORDS there because a few months ago, we had a category called 10-LETTER WORDS in which one of the correct responses was "celebration", a word which contains 11 letters. None of us caught it a the time, nor did the millions upon millions of people who watch our program. We received only 6 letters. We apologize for our error; this is our way of making up for it--by playing another 10-letter word category.)
