Great Horned Owl

The Great Horned Owl is the largest owl found all across North America, they can be found in open habitats, forest, deserts and cities. They are fierce predators that prey on mammals, birds, reptiles and fish and their strong talons require a force of 28 pounds to open. This guy in the picture Came to us from a wildlife rehabber in the Daytona area, he suffered a injury to his left eye and unfortunately it had to be surgically removed. That hasn’t stopped him from behaving like the powerful owl he is. He is recovering well and will be the newest addition to our education ambassadors. Follow his progress on our website, case #20162408. 🙂
