Transcript of The eurasian eagle owl

By: Nicole Villaspin The Eurasian eagle owl Anatomy/appearance Locomotion/Movement Diet Habitat and Range The Eurasian eagle owl normally flies high but if it needs to take a break or sleep and so forth, it perches on a branch. Or something else that is high. But if it is in captivity, sometimes it is on somebody's arm while that person is presenting them the Eurasian eagle owl. But most of the time it is on a branch if it is becoming stubborn. The Eurasian eagle owl eats hares, rabbits, young foxes and birds the size of a duck or a game bird. The Eurasian eagle owl eats squirrels and sometimes small roe deer. But basically it eats anything it could find in forests or sometimes rocky coastlines and that is smaller than the Eurasian eagle owl. The Eurasian eagle owl normally lives in Europe and Asia that is why it is called the "Eurasian" eagle owl. It also lives in Northern coniferous trees and rocky coastlines in Europe and Asia. However, the Eurasian eagle owl can be found in sea level. The Eurasian eagle is mostly found in Europe because they are due to feral european rabbits . The reason why they are also found in some parts of Asia like China, Mongolia, and parts of Afghanistan. Because in the U.K they tried to hunt them down to extinction and they must have forced them into going to Asia. The Eurasian eagle owl is a owl , not an eagle. It is barreled shaped but not the actual size of a barrel. The length of a Eurasian Eagle owl is 58 cm to 71 cm in other words. The Eurasian eagle owl is smaller than the Golden eagle but larger than the Snowy owl. It weighs about 12 kilograms and it's wingspan is 6 and a half feet long. Each wing has 20 feathers, 10 primary feathers and 10 secondary feathers. Defense /Offense The Eurasian eagle owl have various hunting techniques like normally taking their prey on the ground or in full fight. They might hunt in forests, because there is a lot of small animals to kill like small birds, but prefer attacking or fighting their prey in full open spaces.(example:nothing in their way like accidentally bump into a tree and so forth) the Eurasian eagle owl first find their prey - normally in the forests- while standing /perching on a branch then flies after their prey. Their feet have talons so if their talons were cut (no more) that means they might only have two options left to use when they are fighting. Maybe their wings or beak which is also as sharp as their talons. (their beak) Enemies: The Eurasian eagle owl does not really have that much enemies but maybe a few like the common heron or some of the farmers from the United Kingdom in the 1900's . Because they wanted to use their feathers for nice clothing they also tried to kill them to extinction because the Eurasian eagle owl was eating all of the farmers crops and they got very angry so they tried to kill them Something special: The Eurasian eagle owl is related to a lot of old sayings and rituals like in Illinois, 'if you kill an owl (any owl) and revenge will be put upon your family. Or in Louisiana, Owls are old people and they should be respected. There is also a specific old doing, in Japan, the Ainu people, the Eagle Owl is known as a messenger of the gods. Or a divine ancestor. The Eurasian eagle owl can live up to 20 years when it is in the wild but when it is held in captivity, it could live up to 60 years.
