A group of goats is called a tribe or a trip, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Animal groups often have names that seem strange, and these names vary from species to species.
The right word for a group of goats is different from the right word for groups of other animals. A group of sheep, for example, is called a drove, a flock, or a herd. These are pretty common words, but they shouldn’t be used to describe groups of goats.
Other interesting nouns for groups of mammals include a prickle of porcupines, a romp of otters, a bloat of hippopotamuses, a tower of giraffes, and a shrewdness of apes.
