Collective Nouns for Animals - with a twist



scrabqScrabq on 10/04/2008

CollectiveNounsforAnimalswithatwist Photo There are lots of lists of collective nouns and some of them are conflicting.
I have worked with just one in a series called "Fun With Words" and there were some fun ones there.
I liked a "tower of giraffes" and a "crash of rhinoceros".

The twist in this quiz is that I have put together those animals which have a common group name and included one animal that does not have a group of that name. For example: Which animal does not come from a litter? - puppies, kittens, possums, pigs. The answer is: possums.

The second part of the quiz is taking a group name which usually refers to only one animal. Which animals belong to a knot? - snakes, toads, lizards, platypus. The answer is: toads.

And a note of warning: Some animals have more than one collective noun ascribed to them. For instance, cats can belong to a clowder, a clutter, a glaring, a pounce, a nuisance, a kindle......and so on. You might be familiar with a bevy of quail, but it can also be a covey of quail. Take care!

Got the picture?

Enjoy!
