animal groups

You've probably figured out by now how much I like word play and just about anything to do with language. I've been learning the less commonly known words that refer to groups of various animals. I know the common ones, like "flock of sheep" and "herd of cattle." But now I'm learning expressions like "dazzle of zebras" and "crash of rhinoceros" (did you know there are three correct plural forms for rhinoceros? rhi·noc·er·os·es also rhi·noc·er·os or -noc·eri)

Anyway, here are the first two in the new series based on those words. I suppose I'll keep adding more until I burn out.
