Strange Collective Nouns For Groups Of Animals

Ever find yourself not knowing the group noun for an animal? Happens to us nearly every day it seems. And while a majority of group names do have a basic underline understanding as to why they were named that... some names don't hold that obvious clarity. 

Actually some group names leave us feeling completely baffled. And some just seem like missed opportunities! Six years ago, there was a petition to change the group noun of Squid, which is Shoal, into the clearly superior option -- Squad. Seems like the petition worked

A group of bats is called either colony, camp, or our personal favorite -- cloud. There's so much to learn every day!

People Reveal How Their Pets’ Names Have Evolved

Over on Twitter @mooseallain got people thinking about what they called their pets vs what they REALLY call their pets. These poor pets had no idea what they were getting into when they came home to their forever homes, and they might have thought twice if they knew what the names they would get would be. At least some of the names are pretty original, though some seem to repeat themselves.... How many people can call their dog or cat boo or booboo until its just too. much. But no matter how creative these pet owners were with their companions' names, it pales in comparison to these unfortunate names for people that definitely has some malice behind it.
