Hmm . . . is there anyone besides me who sees how many synonyms for "group" are verbs that relate to the animal? A stand of flamingos, a crash of rhinos, a float of alligators . . .
:) Love the topic.

Made me laugh. That certainly suits them. xD I know some groups of sea birds are called wrecks, and a group of caterpillars is an army.
