Yes, there were surprises in that list, for me.

I thought a barrel of monkeys was a joke name but it turns out there are many names you can call a group of monkeys.

It seems there is more than one group name for most of the animals on the list.  For a VERY intensive list of animals and what their group names are, go here:

:whistling: Have you ever been caught out with something you did not know but should have? Our daughter is at home this week from Uni in Cebu for the Silliman Founders Week  (she was a Silliman High school Graduate) Last night she asked me what a gaggle of Geeses was. [That I knew] but it led me to believe that these whilst trifling little bits of Information, are never taught here( there were a lot she  &  Mama never knew. [ or me for that matter] So just as some Trivia I came across this and thought OK! maybe it will be of use to members in case they get asked the same sought of question I was asked. So did we all know all the collective names of Animals and Birds?

You've opened a "can of worms" there Jack.

I've heard of a shoal of fish and a school of whales, but most of those on the list, are ones I have not heard of to be honest. :thumbsup:

Quite common in the USA to refer to Washington DC as a "den of thieves". :hystery:
