Collective names for mammals

Plains zebra (Equus quagga)
Many people are aware of the collective names for the mammals of Africa such as a dazzle of zebras and a herd of elephants. However, what people don’t realise (or at least I didn’t) is that for certain groups there are quite specific terms, for example a zeal of zebras. There are of course many more which can be read in Beat about the bush: Mammals and birds. Which one is yours?
