Contented Owl

03/24/2010

Owl Contented I recently posted about the ticklish koala and noted how strange and fascinating it is when animals make the same facial expressions that people do when they feel joy or contentedness.  Well, here's another excellent example.  Just watching this owl's eyes droop in pleasure at getting scratched "behind the ears" mellows me out!

Plus, this species of owl (a barred eagle owl, native to Southeast Asia) is truly odd looking, wouldn't you agree?  It almost looks like a puppet!
