I Guess We All Know,

the names of different groups of animals,

 pride of lions, school of fish, herd of cattle and so on, well illustrator and designer Mal Jones found the perfect project to keep himself creative for over a year, while also promoting his business Rocketkoi, a full-service design company he co-founded with his wife Sarah Meskin, the artist embarked on a playful series about animals and the unique words used to describe their collective groups, the project is creatively referred to as Nomencreatures—a portmanteau of the terms nomenclature and creatures, coined by fellow illustrator Lisa Bee during a brainstorming session, I thought them neat so here are a few, above a conspiracy of lemurs,

 a fez of armadillos,

a mess of iguanas, for more amusing, well for me anyway takes on groups of animals names have a look here, and no I am not on commission!
