    What do you call a group of dragons?


    I was thinking about this, and decided we need an official name for a group of dragons. "Flock" and "herd" make them sound far too wimpy.

    I personally like "blaze" and "terror" A terror of dragons? "Thunder" would be fitting too; the word dragon came from the Chinese word for thunder, after all. What do you think?

    Japanese mythology refers to a group of dragons as "Tatsu".

    There is already an official word to describe a group of dragons. The correct word you're looking for is a "flight". English is a funny language!

    Anyone know the proper word to describe a group of crows? A group of geese? How about rhinos? Owls? (Yes I know the answers already, but I figure you guys could entertain yourself a bit):
