rather artificial.

First off these lists are very easy to find if I type "groups" into Google it auto completes "groups of animals" which indicates how often this question is asked. 
My suspicion of these hits are just congregations of other lists that have been floating around longer than the WWW itself.  My further suspicion is that many of these were made up by someone with too much time on their hands.

A pride of lions?  Ok people know this, animal shows use it so the usage is likely very old.

A streak of tigers?  No.  Tigers are solitary.  You don't get a group of them.  This is clearly a fanciful invention.

A crash or a stubbornness of rhinoceroses?  You've got to be kidding me.

A parliament of owls?  Oh aren't we clever.  But owls don't flock.  And if they did I'll refer to their flock as a flock.

No.  Not a game for me.
