A want of words

Woop Studios is a visual and aural delight - my eyes and ears are positively popping - an implausibility of gnus, a journey of giraffes, a movement of moles, a pandemonium of parrots etc. Their website has over 1,500 phrases of collective nouns and animal facts. Sweet.

Feed your brain with these facts:

Even a pride of lion is scared of a giraffes kick

Grasshoppers legs can walk along on their own – even detached from their bodies

In Yemen people use camel urine to prevent hair loss

Gnus are also known as Wildebeest - their call sounds like “gnus, gnus”
