As interesting as it was to learn a baby rabbit was called a kitten, I needed to know - What was a group of rabbits called? A heard? A group? A band? Did they even hang around together?
Turns out, they do! Rabbits are social animals and live in large groups to protect themselves from predators. A group of rabbits is called a "colony".
Geese: A group of geese is called a "gaggle".
Cows: A group of cows is called a "herd".
Elephants: A group of elephants is called a "herd". They live in close-knit families led by a matriarch.
Lions: A group of lions is called a "pride". Lions hunt and live together in prides led by a dominant male.
Deer: A group of deer is called a "herd".
Sheep: A group of sheep is called a "flock".
So there you have a short list of groups of animal names - Do you know any fun ones?!
