A symbol for wisdom, owls are mysterious-looking spooky creatures with more than 200 species spread over every continent except Antarctica. The intriguing creatures are amazingly sensitive making them skillful predators. What makes them spookier is when they rotate their neck 270 degrees.
An owl was chilling, perching on a wooden log when a camera pointing right at it caught its attention. The owl was captured giving the camera a piercing gaze and looked spooky as it turned its neck to stare at the camera.
Although owls sleep upright, birds sometimes lie down on their stomachs.
Some animals are just so different that it's unclear if they could become good friends when you introduce them to one another. But with a little help from people they can overcome hurdles and play just like adorable little kids.
Every doggo needs a good snack in the middle of the day to get some energy for running, playing fetch, and barking at everyone. Canines are very good hunters, so they can always go and catch some food, but it may be a bit difficult for them to get sweets - as then they need help from their human friends.
Every doggo needs a lot of energy for everyday shenanigans, and this means they require a lot of food - in fact, when a canine sees something tasty it's almost impossible to stop them from eating that right there. But it seems that some doggos have a lot of discipline and self-control, so they can wait for permission to eat for hours.
