Can You Name These Animal Groups?
Many kinds of animals tend to live in groups.
We know fish have schools, wolves have packs and
cattle has herds, but English is such a rich language that most
animal groups have their own, unique name.
Here are the best 37 examples I found:
A group of woodpeckers is called a Descent
A group of kangaroos is a Mob or a Troop
When flamingos group together, they’re called a Flamboyance
When it comes to cats, a group has many names, like:
Clowder, Clutter, Pounce, Dout, Nuisance, Glare, and my favorite – a Glorying
Hamsters become a Horde
Zebras group into a Zeal or a Dazzle
Bunch bears together and you get a Sleuth
These prairie dogs are a Coterie
Vultures form a Venue (but if they’re circling, they’re a Kettle)
Badgers, bunched together are a Company
Wombats become a Wisdom
Finches in a group are a Charm
These eagles are a Convocation
Larks are Exaltation or Ascension
Everyone knows about a Murder of crows
Sharks swim in Shivers
Chicks flock in Peeps
Mice are a Mischief
These frogs are an Army
Wild gnus – an Implausibility
Seals are a Pod, a Harem or Bob
Elephants come in a Memory
Foxes together, are a Leash, Skulk, or Troop
A group of porcupines makes for a Prickle
Owls are a Parliament
Ducks on the ground are a Brace or a Badling, in the water they’re a Raft,
a Team, or a Paddling
A group of doves is called a Piteousness
These otters, together, are called Bevy or Romp
A group of young penguins is known as a Crèche
When apes are together, they’re called a Shrewdness
A hippo herd is known as a Bloat
A swam of butterflies is called a Flutter
Bring baboons together and you get a Congress (which explains a-lot)
Cheetahs form Coalitions
When it comes to ravens, you can choose between Unkindness and Storytelling
And last but not least, remember that a group of pugs are a Grumble!

परोपकाराय दुहन्ति गावः परोपकाराय इदं शरीरम्।।

” When people hurt you Over and Over think of them as Sand paper.
They Scratch & hurt you, but in the end you are polished and they are finished. ”
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great ones make you feel that you too, can become great."- Mark Twain.
