To my honest understanding, knowing the names of animals with their properties was never been a problem for many elementary students nowadays
But what really amazed me was that some English word that many people use in their day to day discussion are also meant for another thing that are even differ in mean to the usual one
I’m just taking a stroll this morning and I overheard some kids arguing that a group of Lizard is called LOUNGE. I had to step back to avoid invitation to that argument because I’m still wondering why a group of Lizard will be called Lounge
But to burst your view, it is not only peculiar to lizard.
Would you believe that!
A GROUP OF CROWS IS CALLED A MURDER?
Crows are actually a very black highly intelligent bird which also have the reputation of damaging form crops since they usually live in an open place, agriculture land, grass land and other places with greener pasture
Crows can be found anywhere in the world which do not exclude Nigeria, they are particularly common in the south-western part of the country
While talking of intelligent earlier, Crows are darn intelligent and fond of problem solving especially with their amazing communication skill
What really amazed me about this bird is when they encountered mean human beings either tall or short it’s very easy for them figure it out because whenever a human being once do wrong to this birds they will never forget the person’s face. Crows birds always remember who wrong them

Calling a group of ferrets a business was at first surprised me but later discovered a saying about the name given to the group
Ferrets are affectionate, very quiet and undoubtedly an adorable animal with a very fine and sweet face
They are very small in size having a life soan of six to eight years though some used up to 12 years which is particularly depend on their various habitat
Although this animal does not exist in some years back in Nigeria but due to overwhelming of exposure of most African children to other nations’ culture
Ferrets is pretty cool, calm and quiet animal which makes some people curious and ask that “Do ferret die of loneliness” ferret is an extremely playful animal and can as well add health benefit to the owner because seeing ferret playing will surely lift its owner’s mood

Absolutely No, they possess an extremely small eye and invisible ear according to mammals scientists
The can be find anywhere around the world except Antarctica and South America.

This is possible because owls don’t have eye ball but eye tube which means their eyes are fixed in one position which they need to turn head to higher angle to be able to see side object
They also known of making terrifying hissing noise
