Today's Wordle answer July 18

Today's Wordle answer is: FLOCK.

As mentioned in the earlier hint, Flock refers to a group of animals that are buddies. Usually, this would be either birds or sheep that travel together, set up their community in the same spot, and might even send their kids to the same schools. Let's focus on flocks of sheep here, though, because I am terrified of birds. A flock of birds sounds like a nightmare.

If you want to stop others confronting their nightmares, then make sure to keep today's Wordle answer a secret. Lots of people make Wordle part of their daily routine, and it'd be cruel to spoil the answer before they've had chance to guess. Remain tight-lipped until tomorrow, when a new Wordle puzzle will begin.
