How would YOU describe different groups of animals?

 

The English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic collective nouns for the various groups of animals.
 
We are all familiar with a

Herd of cows,
 
 
image002.jpeg
a Flock of chickens,
 
 
image003.jpeg
a School of fish
 
 
image004.jpeg
and a Gaggle of geese.
 
 
 
 
 
 
However, less widely known is:
 
 
image005.jpeg
a Pride of lions,
 
image006.jpeg
a Murder of crows
 
image007.jpeg
(as well as their cousins the rooks and ravens),
 
 
image008.jpeg
an Exaltation of doves.
 
And, presumably because they look so wise:

a Parliament of owls.
 
 
Now consider a group of Baboons.
They are the loudest, most dangerous, most obnoxious, most viciously aggressive and least intelligent of all primates.
And what is the proper collective noun for a group of baboons?
 
 
 
Believe it or not ……. a Congress!

A CONGRESS OF BABOONS!
 
I guess that pretty much explains the things that come out of Washington !
 
You just can’t make this stuff up.
