Beastly Garden of Wordy Delights

Have you ever encountered a bloat of hippos or a charm of finches? This entertaining website, created by researcher and educator Melissa Kaplan, provides various descriptive terms for an extensive list of animals. Part 1 of the site contains plurals, collective nouns, and words for sounds, gender, and offspring. For example, a female kangaroo is a flyer, and a young swan is cygnet. Part 2 offers Animal Adjectives like apian for a bee and pavonine for peacocks. This Part also includes a short section on herp riddles and jokes. This site connects to a diverse array of other information areas as well with headings such as Amphibians, Parent / Teacher, Veterinarians, Conservation, and For Kids.
