#EngVocab Groups of Animals

Good evening, fellas! How are you today?

Looks like you are all feeling great today. I’m happy to hear that!

Last weekend I went to my old house, the place where I grew up as a child. It’s in a village quite far from the city.

It was delightful. I saw a herd of goats, many flocks of ducks, and sceneries you won’t be able to see in the city.

Today we are going to talk about collective nouns in animals because our session today is #EngVocab Groups of Animals.

You’ve probably already heard of some examples like the ones I mentioned beforehand. But some of these are very unique, or weird. #EngVocab

Let’s begin! #EngVocab

  1. A band of gorillas. #EngVocab
  2. A bed of clams/oysters. #EngVocab
  3. A cast of hawks. #EngVocab
  4. A leap of leopards. #EngVocab
  5. A mob of kangaroos. #EngVocab
  6. A murder of crows. #EngVocab
  7. A pack of wolves. #EngVocab
  8. A parliament of owls. #EngVocab
  9. A pride of lions. #EngVocab
  10. A school of fishes. #EngVocab

You can also use other expression of quantity with these special names for collective nouns. #EngVocab

For example: “two packs of wolves” or “several leaps of leopards” #EngVocab

So, how was it fellas? Some of them are very weird, aren’t they? #EngVocab

Do you have more specific collective nouns for animals to add? #EngVocab
