Livestock / Animal Husbandry
English term or phrase: Sounder
Jeg leter etter navnet på "familiegruppen" til vortesvin, som på engelsk kalles "sounder". Setningen er: "Warthogs live in a family group called a "sounder," that consists of one or more females and their young piglets". Er det noen som vet hva dette kalles på norsk? Veldig takknemlig for svar!
