A Giggle of Groups

I've always enjoyed hearing some of the various names given to a particular group of animals. Did someone just start referring to each group and the name stuck? Was there a committee setup in England a hundred years ago which sorted them all out during a long pub visit? In any case, here are a few good ones:

A Prickle of Porcupines

A Congress of Baboons

An Embarrassment of Pandas

A Kindle of Kittens

A Grumble of Pugs

An Armory of Aardvarks

A Zeal of Zebras

A Shrewdness of Apes

A Cloud of Bats

A Caravan of Camels

A Clowder of Cats

A Coalition of Cheetah

A Band of Coyotes

A Pod of Dolphins

A Tribe of Goats

A Labor of Moles

A Richness of Martens

A Gaze of Raccoons

A Crash of Rhinoceroses

A Bob of Seals

A Wisdom of Wombats

A Dray of Squirrels

A Murder of Crows

A Convocation of Eagles

A Parliament of Owls

An Exaltation of Larks

A Bouquet of Pheasant

...and on it goes.
