I found a few more groups, that I thought were interesting. Of course I'm still wondering who decided on these terms for groups of animals. A group of parrots is called a company. A group of goats is called a trip. A group of toads is called a knot. I didn't know any of these.

Are goats tripping over themselves or taking acid?

Actually, goats are generally very sure-footed but they do eat a lot of garbage if they get the chance.

Thank you for sharing. I didn't know this. I looked this up and was amused to find that a group of kangaroos is known as a mob.

I thought that a group of kangaroos were called a troop. Maybe they are also called a mob? What do our Australian mylotters say? Are both terms correct?

I didn't know any of these either. I just recently learned that a group of geese is called a gaggle. Like you, I wonder who comes up with this stuff.
