The body characteristics vary from one specie to another, but generally, owls have rounded faces with forward-looking eyes, and sharply hooked beaks.
Their forward-looking eyes give them binocular vision, which makes them capable of capturing the same with both eyes and have a 3D image, just like humans.
Owls can’t turn their eyes, but they are able to rotate their heads up to 270 degrees.
Owls are one of the oldest animals discovered by humans, they were present around 60-57 million years ago.
Owls’ size and weight change from one specie to another. The Eurasian eagle-owl (Bubo bubo) and Blakiston’s fish owl (Bubo Blakistoni) are the largest species, the female from these two species is 28 in (71 cm) long, and weighs 9.25 lb (4.2 kg).
The smallest specie is the Elf owl. Its size range is 5-6 in (12-15 cm) tall, and 1.5 ounces in weight.
Owl females are slightly larger, heavier, and more aggressive than males, that’s said for most of the owl species.
