Owl Owl

There are a number of kinds of Eagle Owls, so called because of their size. Most owls are nocturnal or night hunters.

Both Great and Bengal Eagle Owls are hunters of medium to large sized birds and mammals up to the size of hares and even young Roe Deer. Individuals have been known to attack unwary keepers. Male owls are smaller than females. This enables the parents to take a wider range of prey to feed their young.
