New Names for Groups of Animals

loadofbullWho came up with the terms for groups of animals? Who decided that geese came in flocks, lions come in prides, and so on? The folks at decided to come up with “Better Names for Groups of Animals” for this video (Warning: a couple of expletives are shown on screen, in case you’re at work or around mom), and their ideas include a platoon of baboons, a pack of yaks, a Ryan of goslings… okay, you get the idea. And that, of course, leads to a game in which you come up with your own terms. Sorry, a “murder of crows” is taken and is real, so you’ll have to do better. Suggest your own below. Remember, rhyming is good.
