Zeus, a blind Western Screech Owl that has eyes like galaxies. The
‘stars’ in Zeus’s eyes are caused by strands and clumps of collagen
floating around it. Zeus found a home at the Wildlife Learning Centre in
California back in 2014.
During my time spent on tumblr perusing photos of cute baby animals, I’ve seen a lot of photosets where a photo of a very cute plush doll was misidentified as a real baby owl. And I happen to think the real thing is fantastically adorably awkward and deserves to be cooed over too. So here is a photoset of actual baby owls for your viewing pleasure.
