I found this slightly unnerving.
Amazing bird but not the kindest to the goats.
I can't view youtube where I am but I'm grateful that you're still posting videos of animals.
Incidentally do you think an owl could mate with an eagle?
Sorry, you're probably busy, forget about it.
as they are both nice birds but I fear the Golden Eagle would accidentally tear the Owl apart with it's talons while in the heat of passion. I think that's the main reason they avoid each other, it's not a lack of attraction.
out by the massive head. Though I could see why an owl would want to bag an eagle.
It's a shame really.
you can overlook other physical defects (ie fully rotating neck), if they have nice eyes.
Animals are amazing.
my bird is perfect.
I mean her.
only I've got some time on my hands and I work near a pet shop.
Also : is there a nobel prize available for this sort of thing? Making animals mate and stuff?
it could be named after one of us.
Nobody has watched the videos, have they?
but I'm leaving you two be.
which is a pity because I'd imagine they're good. Who wouldn't want to see an owl putting some moves on an eagle. (or vice versa).
I think we're going to have to film those ones ourselves. Or sell the rights to National Geographic or David Attenborough. Or You've Been Framed.
because I can get those for free. Then I'll get a research grant off the government and go to the petshop.
I've always said we need a plan.
I'm going to start with small rodents, like the Shrew and Hamster and then work my way up to the Capybara and Coypu. I'm pretty excited to see how it goes. You don't happen to have a spare Coypu lying around, do you?
Because I can probably get a dog. I think it's a bit bitey though.
but not a big one.
It's also known as 'swamp beaver', if that's any clue.
I think that's funny but I don't know why.
I'm walking that way anyway.
Owls are the best :D
It's utterly amazing!
Props for the Imperial March music use, too.
"It's a white-faced scops owl... I am mildly impressed that, while bubology is not my forte, I recognised it as a scops owl and guessed that it would be called a white-faced scops owl (ornithologists are so predictable). What it looks to be doing is, when faced with a barn owl, which is small enough for it to not feel threatened but might be competing with it, it pretends to be a big f-off owl to scare off the barn owl, but when confronted with an owl that might potentially eat it, it pretends to be a branch.
