Nice hobby though. Are we still in the Hobbies section, aren't we?

thieves collect gems and pictures should also be correct although most thieves collect other things.

Same thing people with very many money collect!

much is better than very many with money in english but do not worry about it. but what you wrote is true in my experience.

I fee that "The thieves collect gems and pictures" would be a more accurate translation.

I was marked wrong for writing pictures before gems....

Duolingo tends to be quite strict with 'and' and 'or' orders. Likely emphasize which word is which.

Duolingo rejected “the robbers ...”. Is there a Latin word other than “fur” that specifically means “robber” as opposed to “thief”?

Colligunt sounded like colligum@
