  6. Only "unkindness"?

    Troop of chimpanzees....
     
    • A group of kangaroos is called a mob.
    • A group of whales is called a pod.
    • A group of larks is called an exaltation.
    • A group of owls is called a parliament.
    And my favorite-
    A group of Unicorns is called a blessing
    :)
