Fun, Cool and Interesting Facts about Owls!
Who wants to learn more about owls?
(Or should I say ‘OWLsome!’?) 🙂
I found a few cool facts about owls and I am sharing them all here with you!The Complete Book of North American Owls
Before I start, what do we know so far about owls without having to do any research?
Well… let’s see… We know they are nocturnal animals right? That means they usually stay awake at night and sleep most of the day…
We also know they represent wisdom and people usually buy owl themed gifts for someone who is graduating from college…
But what else can we say about owls?
Let’s find out!
About OwlsNice Book about Owls
*There are about 200 species of owls in the world!
That’s a lot of owls!
Have you ever seen one up close? 🙂
*They can rotate their neck almost all the way around their heads, at about 270 degrees!
Do you wish you could rotate your neck too like that?
That would be weird….
*They have ‘binocular’ vision!
That means they can see really, really well!
(Well, I think they don’t need glasses then… But I kind of like plush owls that come with glasses, I think they are pretty cute! 🙂
Snowy Owls!Snowy Owls (Polar Animals)
*You guessed it right!
Snowy owls are WHITE owls that actually like to be active during the day!
That means they are ‘diurnal’!
*They are also carnivores!
Yup, these owls like to eat meat!
(They usually hunt small rodents, birds, rabbits, lemmings (their favorite meal!), ducks and hares…)
*They live around 9 years.
Barn Owls!Barn Owl Book
*Barn owls have almost a ‘heart-shaped’ face, very unique, and large dark eyes!
*They are also carnivores and they like to eat small mammals.
(They really love to eat small rodents…)
*They live from 5 to 10 years approximately.
*They usually come out at night to eat!
*They can fly almost without making any noise!
(That makes it very easy for them to catch their prey… they don’t hear the owl coming to get them…)
*They swallow their prey whole!
(Ouch! Aren’t you glad you are human??)
