Beware the Bloat of Hippos

I get a kick out of the names for groups of animals, like “murder of crows.”  So I was excited when I saw this sock puppet video of “weird” animal group names, and figured it would make the perfect Phun Phriday post.  If anyone feels like researching the history behind an “embarrassment of pandas” I would love to learn the origin of that one!
