The United States Geological Survey refers to a group of goats as a tribe or a trip. Species-specific groupings of animals frequently have names that appear peculiar.
The correct collective noun for a group of goats is distinct from that of other animals. For instance, a group of sheep may be referred to as a drove, a flock, or a herd. These are pretty familiar terminology, however they do not accurately describe goat tribes. Others include a prickle of porcupines, a romp of otters, a bloat of hippopotamuses, a tower of giraffes, and a shrewdness of apes.
