Yep, it's correct. I remember doing a project on animal groups in 5th grade, and on each animal group website I went onto, that one was there, along with the animal group name book I got at the library.

I always tend to laugh at some of the irony involved in the group names for some of these animals; if you want to call it that. They're all rather strange in some way..

Some weird ones I know:

  • - Group of Armadillos is called a Roll [ Not sure on this one I've seen different things for it ]
    - Group of Barracudas is called a Battery
    - Group of Boars is called a Sounder
    - Group of Butterflies is called a Rabble, Flight, Flutter or Swarm
    - Group of Coyotes is called a Train
    - Group of Eels is called an Array
    - Group of Frogs is called a Bundle
Again, I can't actually verify anything to say all of these are correct but.. yeah. I find them a tad amusing either way. ^^"

Penguins are so awesome that they have several group names.
  • In general, a group of penguins is known as a parcel.
    A group of penguins on land is a waddle.
    A nesting group of penguins is a rookery.
    A group of baby penguins is a creche.
    A group of penguins on water is a raft.


Here are others:
  • A group of goats is called a herd, trip, or tribe.
    A group of flies is called a business.
    A group of hamsters is a horde.
