Are groups of moose called herds?
Moose are the least social species among cervids, remaining fairly solitary except during the mating season. They are not territorial. Outside of the rutting period, males and females are sexually segregated: males and females are separated spatially, temporally, and/or by habitat. In the tundra moose in Alaska form harems and taiga moose form transient pair bonds. In the harem mating system, the largest, most dominant male attempts to herd a group of females together, which he defends from all other males.
A young moose is called a calf. The baby moose are called calves. (Female moose are called cows.)
NO. Not usually. If you see several at one place it could be for one of the following reasons; It is mating season, It is a mother and her offspring, or it is a common feeding area.

Moose are solitary animals, except for when mating or when the cow is caring for her calf or calves.
I'm not sure what you're referring to, but as far as "family groups" are concerned, this is only applicable to a cow and her calf or calves, which she keeps with her until they're a year old, which is when she weans them off and chases them away, leaving them to fend for themselves. Moose are solita…ry animals, by the way, not herd-bound unlike other ungulates like deer, elk, cattle, sheep, goats and antelope. ( Full Answer )
Calling animals has been done for thousands of years and works by mimicking natural sounds to lure an animal closer or capture the animal's interest. It is impossible to know who first thought of the idea.
A herd is not a single animal, but a social grouping of many animals, as in "a herd of horses."
When a young man calls a woman of any age a moose it generally means she could be a large boned girl or very tall and appears larger. Name callers are people who have low self esteem.
Both species have a powerful grouping instinct, sheep more than cattle. This is because they feel that they have better defense against a predator by grouping together, and feel less vulnerable if they are with other cattle or sheep than if they were alone.

One mig…ht also say that one was teaching a school of penguins. Many thanks to that first answereer! ( Full Answer )
Different. You are talking about two completely different associations. A herd is a group of cows, where as "cow" is individualistic. A school is a place for a group (or groups) of children to gather. There is no individualism there, nor any similar association. The answer might be "same" if you had… "herd is to cow as group is to child", or "pasture is to herd as school is to group." This is because these two examples directly associate with each other, or are related as a group to an individual or a place to a group, respectively. ( Full Answer )
A group of sheep are called a flock. But if you have a very large group of sheep, you call it a drove.

A group of moose is a herd and a group of fish is a school what are you your parents and siblings called?
If a group of moose is a herd, a group of fish is a school, yourparents and your siblings are called a family. A family can alsoinclude other relatives too. Parents and siblings are called brothers and sisters. Your parent'sbrothers and sisters would be your aunts and uncles.
No, I do not think that is the correct group term. I think Colony,Cloud or Roost of bats would be the correct terms.
