A group of owls is called a parliament. Do you know what a group of crows is called?

You may know the names of many animals, but what about their group names (collective nouns)? You probably know some of the more common group names such as a pride of lions, pack of wolves and a school of fish. There are some rather interesting ones that you probably haven’t heard of out there, though.

A group of crows, for example, is called a murder. Some other interesting ones include an army of caterpillars, a mob of emus, a tower of giraffes, a smack of jellyfish and an unkindness of ravens.

What about a group of humans? Well, there isn’t one single collective noun for humans. Depending on who you ask, there can be a lot of different terms actually. Some common ones are a crowd, population, society, tribe and community. It’s possible that there just isn’t a collective noun for humans. What do you think?
