I enjoy seeing the situations being described get increasingly implausible as we learn the higher numbers.

Would omitting "een" in this sentence be ok? I know for honderd and duizend it is implied, but is that also true for miljoen?

In fact "miljoen" always requires a "een", a native speaker told me so, so I think he should be right :)

Would this be understood literally or figuratively? Like, is there an actual count of 1,000,000 turtles or is this just a way of saying she has a lot of turtles?
