How can I use itertools.groupby()?

groups = []
uniquekeys = []
for k, g in groupby(data, keyfunc):
   groups.append(list(g))    # Store group iterator as a list
   uniquekeys.append(k)
from itertools import groupby

things = [("animal", "bear"), ("animal", "duck"), ("plant", "cactus"), ("vehicle", "speed boat"), ("vehicle", "school bus")]

for key, group in groupby(things, lambda x: x[0]):
    for thing in group:
        print("A %s is a %s." % (thing[1], key))
    print("")
    
for key, group in groupby(things, lambda x: x[0]):
    listOfThings = " and ".join([thing[1] for thing in group])
    print(key + "s:  " + listOfThings + ".")
