In plenty of time for H-"owl"-o-ween

So, I asked my granddaughter, how do you like the new owls we just got from Hansa? She said, "you mean the burrowing owls, Nana?" I looked at the tag...

"Burrowing Owl"


with jointed head, can rotate 360 degrees,

Sorry to burst your bubble, but owls cannot turn their heads 360 degrees. They can only turn them 270 degrees which is quite far. Owls eyes do not move in the socket like ours do so they must turn their whole head to see on the sides and behind them. It sure looks like they can turn them 360 degrees though.
