30 Collective nouns of animals, fish and mythical creatures

Do you ever wonder what a group of unicorns are called, or maybe a get together of porcupines, well I can help you out. 

When I was working in an office, my friend and I would often discuss what the collective noun of animals & mythical creatures was.

This could keep us entertained for ages, so I thought I would share a few of my favourites

Some are quite well known, some less so, and some are arguable - In other words, many things have many collective nouns associated with them, and one person may believe it to be one thing and another something else.

What are a group of these happy otters called?


Anyway, here you go;
