MORE GROUPS OF ANIMALS
Added on: 26th Jan 2015
A CONSPIRACY OF LEMURS
Usually residing in groups as small three, some lemurs form
conspiracies that number up to twenty five.
A HOOD OF SNAILS
In spite of their sloth, studies have shown that isolation has
a negative impact on a snail over the long run, which means
that like most other creatures even snails require
A PARLIAMENT OF OWLS
While they tend to be extremely territorial and independent,
outside of breeding season many species do form flocks,
A MAELSTROM OF SALAMANDERS
In the wild salamanders are known to live their lives in relative
solitude although there may be times that you will find
a small group together.
A CACKLE OF HYENAS
As one of the most socially advanced members of the animal
kingdom, hyenas live and hunt in organized social groups that
exhibit complex relationships.
A HORDE OF HAMSTERS
It may come as a surprise but hamsters are one of the more
solitary animals. In fact, if you ever try putting them together
it quite often results in aggression.
A COALITION OF CHEETAHS
As with most large mammals cheetahs usually live in highly
structured social groups, or at least the males do. Females
tend to live on their own shortly after leaving their cubs
to fend for themselves.
A CRASH OF ELEPHANTS
As with cheetahs, it should come as no surprise that elephants
are highly social animals. In fact, they have some of the
strongest family ties of any animal. They engage in everything
from greeting ceremonies and complex communication to
teaching and communal care.
