Categories Puzzle

Now, something more light-hearted!

This is a "categories" puzzle (ala Will Shortz) where there's a theme word and then a number of categories. For each one, you need to name different items in the category which begin with the letters in the theme word.

Some categories are a bit trickier than others. I found that for most I'd breeze all the way through except for one or two letters... See how you do! I do have at least one complete set of answers for each of the categories. Feel free to post answers though, as is typical for my puzzle posts, comments are not screened so if you want it to be a challenge do the solving before reading 'em.




Today's theme word is A N T H R O

Example: Phonetic Alphabet
Possible Answers: Alpha November Tango Hotel Romeo Oscar

1. Animals (common names)
2. Trees (varieties of)
3. US State Capitals
4. Chemical Elements
5. Countries
6. Colors (some creativity necessary)
7. Bodies in the Solar System
8. Proper Names from Tolkien's LotR
9. Muppets (names of characters)
10. Instruments

Googleriffic Bonus:
B1. Animals (latin genus)

Silly Bonus:
B2. Anthropomorphics, all about (wild creativity encouraged)
