Collective Nouns about Animals

Posted by Miriam

“A pack of dogs” everyone knows, but what about these?

  • A blessing of unicorns
  • A convocation of eagles
  • A gang of elk
  • An intrusion of cockroaches
  • An ostentation of peacocks
  • A doom of dragons
  • A troop of kangaroos
  • A nursery of raccoons
