Updated July 24, 2020 | Infoplease Staff

The Question:

I am looking for a list of words for "plurals" of animals, i.e. a "pack" of wolves or a "flock" of seagulls. I have looked at various websites and got basically nowhere, any help would be appreciated!!!

The Answer:

Relax. You've come to the right place. Here's a link to a page on our site that has a list of Animal Group Terminology.

And while you're at it, you might want to check this chart out as well. It gives you the correct Animal Names: Male, Female and Young of some common species.
