What are collective nouns and how are they used?
Collective nouns are used to describe a group of objects or animals thinking or moving the same way.
For example, you may see a few bees in your garden: One flying over the garden, one sitting on a flower and the other is chasing your brother. This is just three bees.
If those bees are chasing your brother at the same time, he is facing a swarm of bees. Look out!
Pride of lions
Lions are the only species of cats that form social groups. These groups are called a pride. Most known prides include up to five females, two males and their young.
Lions hunt in their prides and survive better hunting larger prey weighing as much as 1000kgs. When hunting prey this large, they eat as a pride, however, if only smaller prey is available at the time of hunting, lions will hunt and eat alone.
