Hi
I need to clarify the grammatically correct plural of certain mammals. Is it cheetah/s, lion/s, nyala/s, leopard/s?
Thanks
Jeffrey

Though one is inclined to say I see there is lion,cheetah,leopard and Nyala in the KNP !!! Dont use the plural in this case.
But if you said there are 6 lions ,4 cheetahs,2 leopards and 16 Nyala s in the KNP .


confusing :?

I have seen 1 Leopard, 6 Wild Dog, 4 Cheetah, many elephant and also Lion today, but very few Rhino, but if you see Leopard, Wild Dogs, Lions, Cheetah, rhino and elephants in one day, it was a good one for animals. :tongue:

Confusing methinks. :hmz:
