There are some good mammal ones too, but they're not used as often. Such as a crash of rhinos, or a romp of otters. The most accurate would probably be a prickle of porcupines.

I was always partial to the term for a group of baboons. It's called a congress.

Had two identical throws with the Stego yesterday that couldn’t have worked with any other disc in the universe, IMHO.

Par 4.
Basket on the top of a significant knoll.
Off the fairway to the left after a drive 2/3 of the way down the fairway.
Absolute jail directly to the basket.
Only legit opening is 50’+ in the air and quite a bit to the right.
If I stretch waaaay to the right and throw a RHFH at an extreme anny (like 1 o’clock), I can make the curve to the basket, maybe, but risk landing and rolling well past the basket.
If I try a RHBH extreme hyzer, I can’t stretch to the right enough to get the angle, and would have no power to get there.
I could pitch out to the fairway. Boring.

So, I grab my flat top, max weight Stego, stretch out, and throw the extreme anny. I hit the window, it muscles its way all the way to flat, and plops right next to the basket.

Next round my drive is like 5’ from where the first one landed, but even further left. Same throw, same result.

TL;DR - Stegos rock.

Stegos are hilarious. and so good at that high extreme anny pan out.
I can't figure out at all how forehand rollers work with it, they just almost go the wrong way.
I bought one recently and took it to the Seneca Creek Soiree, I had one of my cardmates throw it and it got a bunch of "What was that??" from local pros who then of course tossed it back and forth a couple times to great amusement.

I think the expectation just has to be, for any shot you haven’t thrown with it before, expect the opposite of what any other reasonably thrown disc would’ve done. Works perfectly.

This, the scale, and the serpent should top that list

I've used it with great success to basically make a u turn and head back up a hill.

As I learned last night, a quiver of cobras.

OT, check out Cobra Kai on YouTube if you get a chance. Way better than I thought it would be.
