I thought since Mom's job is wildlife picture taking (njwight.com), we could do a class about one of her favourite subjects-wild African animals! 🐘🦁🦏🦩🦓🐆🦎

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you! Here in southern Oregon USA we are having our Thanksgiving while social distancing with no family or friends this year so I thought it would be right to reach out to our favorite KGworld channels to say Thank You for helping us bear this horrible year.

  • Hi Pluto! I found this list online in 'Bark Post' which I thought you'd like; a partial list, you can find the rest at www.barkpost.com/life/groups-of-breeds. "A Sovereign of Schnauzers. Schnauzers are so on top of the beard game, it makes them look like regal gentlemen. Get a group of them together, and you have a nice sovereign." Hope you see the whole list & you liked it. Hope you have a fun Thanksgiving! :)

I knew a very few but now, I ROCK! !!Gracias profesor! (did I say I love your ears?) and (your paws?) Happy Thanksgiving to you and your mom!

  • Hi Pluto, thanks for educating Mom on all the names of groups of animals. I don't live in a group. I prefer to be like the cheetah. All by myself, so I don't have to share mom. Kinda, like you. Have a happy week, we will be eating turkey tomorrow. Gram's cooking. YEAH! She always drops food on the floor for me. I can't wait.

  • Dear Pluto, I learned a lot. However, I had to check you on my fave animal - the elephant. A memory of elephants! Because they are good “rememberers”! I looked that up, Pluto. All I found on the matter is a band called Memory of Elephants. I think you and Mum might have enjoyed one too many martinis last night. ooox

  • Very interesting lesson thank you Pluto. Here in the Aussie lands a group of kangaroos is called a 'mob'🦘, a parade of echnidas, a parliament of Magpies, a paddle of platypus, a lounge of Blue Tongue Lizards (yes that's a real thing) and my favourite, a chatter of budgerigars. Also there is no collective noun for koalas cause you don't see them travelling in groups.🐨

  • A Cache of Jewels is a book for children on collective nouns by Ruth Heller. Delightful. She includes such gems as: a sleuth of bears, a clew of worms, a rafter of turkeys, a walk of snails, and a covey of quails. Whoever said the subject of Grammar was dull?! Not in the Pluto Universe! As Hamlet admonished his players, "Speak the speech, I pray you, as I pronounced it to you, trippingly on the tongue." As you do, Pluto!

  • Hi Pluto, Gracie here again from the Australialands. Thanks for the class today. We have lots of special words for the 4 legged but because some of them stand up and hop we use the word Mob for pretty much everything, except jellyfish who don’t have any legs and are called a Smack. For my extension work I used the googlies to help with a name for 2 or more Schnauzers gathered in a kitchen and they suggested a Schnuggle but I didn’t think it was strong enough so maybe a Snack, too basic? Then came a Sovereign which I thought covered it. Keep Safe and warm.

  • Dearest Pluto, 1. You look absolutely smashing in that color! 2. I can't state this as fact, only opinion, but: Humans are not the smartest of the Great Apes. Or any of God's other miraculous creatures. But they think they are. 3. I forgot your Moms is the world UNreknowned photographer (with impeccable smarts and a brilliant sense of humor, yet remarkably humble, I might add). Tell NJ I am envious of her opportunities to experience end photograph the beautiful wildlife in Africa. Elephants and all the other Great Apes are my absolute faves. Besides enjoying Pluto videos, I keep finding myself knee deep in gorilla baby vids and puppies in general these days. Quarantine is teaching me, "So, this is who I am..." Love you and Moms, Pluto 🐵🐒🦍🐶🐕🐩🦁🐯🐅🐴🐘🦏🦇🦅🦉 wait, what no Schnauser mojiis?

  • Great info, Professor Pluto, thank you! And very devilishly chic scarf! I also like coffle of donkeys, rafter of turkeys, scurry of squirrels, escargatoire of snails, surfeit of skunks, smack of jellyfish, and kettle of hawks. Also, there is a sloth of bears, but no "bear" of sloths, since there's no official term for a group of sloths! (Although some from the Sloth Conservation Foundation are proposing a "snuggle" of sloths, hah hah!)
