There are over 150 species of owls in the world. Owls live in many different climates and environments, on several different continents and countries in the world. Owls are known for their large eyes, which they use to see at night. Owls are nocturnal (they sleep during the day and are awake at night), which makes large eyes a necessity for hunting in the dark. Their large pupils allow them to take in more light in the surrounding darkness.
Owls are also known for their necks that can turn almost 360 degrees around. They eat primarily rodents on the forest floor or rodents in the open fields. They swallow the rodent whole. Their bodies then digest the soft tissues of the animal. However, they are unable to digest the fur, teeth, and bones of the rodent. Owls vomit a small ball of fur, bones, and teeth knowns as an own pellet.
