Yum, I just found this page containing a big list of collective nouns for animals. Reminded me of a poem I wrote along those lines once. But really I was looking for Latin-derived adjectives for various animals. You know canine and feline and bovine and equine, but do you know lupine and taurine and ursine and porcine? I do, but until now I didn't know anguine and ranine and lapine and murine. Words are fun. :)
