|I thought of committee for #3, but I was thinking of the double m's and thought, "Nope, can't be it: there aren't double letters after 'm'". Silly me, for getting about the double t's and e's.|

|Sorry but the Australian bonus one makes little sense. The clue is totally random apart from being Australian. Imagine using three random American creatures as a clue to an American word:
prairie dog, condor, grizzly!
The other clues actually hinted at their answers.|
