Re: more (specific) dino collective nouns

But in keeping with other scientific disciplines, in which famous
scientists lend their names to units of measure (e.g. the hertz, the
ampere, the newton, the sagan*), we could standardize numbers of dinosaurs
within a population; hence, one hundred dinosaurs make an owen, one
thousand owens a kilowen, and so on.

We could even specialize for certain groups, so that one hundred
tyrannosaurs makes a holtz or one hundred ceratopsians a dodson.

*  one sagan = billions and billions.
