Animal Terminology, Infant and Conglomeration Terms

weather: sunny

What caused me to look this up, doesn't matter anymore. But this Google journey was a fun one and I thought I'd post it here.

The proper terminology for the young of any species of fowl is a chick. But, I find some of the more uncommon ones fascinating. A baby hare is a leveret. A baby hawk is an eyas. A baby quail is a cheeper or a squealer =) A baby jellyfish is an ephyna.

Animal group names are also very interesting. An exaltation of larks. A murder of crows. A richness of martens. A covey of grouse. An array of hedgehogs. A parliament of owls. A cete of badgers. A siege of heron. A bale of turtles. A bloat of hippopotami =D
