Animals Of Instagram Spotlight Of The Week: Zeus, The Blind Owl

Once a week, we will be featuring an extraordinary animal account on Instagram! Their story, the adorable pictures, and pawesome videos! This week's spotlight goes to Zeus, the blind owl! 

You've probably seen Zeus before, he went viral for his incredible peepers! Eyes that look as if they contain the whole universe and all the answers to the unknown. When we hear or think of a 'Wise Owl,' it's Zeus who we think of. Zeus may be blind but he sure has the most enchanting eyes.

Zeus is a Western Screech Owl with a great wingspan. On his Instagram, it is mentioned that he has about 10% of his vision, and is able to see shapes and memorize his immediate surroundings. He currently is being cared for at the Wildlife Learning Center in Los Angeles, California. The wildlife center's mission is to "provide public education that inspires people to care for our wildlife, to care for our environment, to develop a deep interest in the life sciences, and to give loving care and sanctuary to animals in need." 

Find out how you can help them accomplish their mission and how you can help Zeus. 

Read up on last week's star on Instagram, Rex, The T-Rex Cat!

If there was ever a video to express how hot it's been lately to the point of melting, this owl vid would be in the top 5. 

And good news to all the Harry Potter fans that have been waiting for their letter to Hogwarts, it's likely the letter hasn't made its way to you yet because your owl is melting in the heat and needs time to cool off. 

That's how we're looking at it, anyways. Enjoy this adorable feathery mush of cuteness! And if you're an owl lover, like anyone wouldn't be, check out some owl memes -- they're a hoot

Oh, to be a tiny adorable, big-eyed owl resting its head against a fuzzy green hair. What a life. 

To be completely honest, we have no idea what's going on in this video but we do know why it has over a million views in 2 months' time -- it's freakin' cute!!! Why is there an owl there? Who cares! We are obsessed with the little hooter and want one of our own! 

The way it softly rests its head on the chair is simply too much. We're squealing over here, in case you didn't realize. Just. Too. Much. Cute.

Sure all animals sneeze but not for one moment have we ever stopped to wonder what a bird sneeze would sound like. Or more specifically, what an owl sneeze would sound like. 

Now that we've watched this video and know that they sound like, we can confirm that yes, it is cute, and yes, totally worth watching. 

Bless you, lovely Owl!

What A Hoot: 20 Owl Memes

These owl memes have got us feeling owl kinds of good! Get it? Because "owl" sounds like "all"? 

We'll stop now. 

Did you know there are up to 220 species of owls in the world? We swear we feel like we've only seen 15 or so. And that it's a myth that owls can turn their heads a full 360 degrees? Close but not all the way because that is absolutely terrifying. 

Oh, and you know those big owl eyes that stare at you with the force of a thousand suns? Yeah, apparently an owl's eyes account of 1-5% of the owl's body weight. Which is insane but also doesn't really surprise us. 

Enjoy some owl goodness on us!

'Male' Owl Shocks Staff At Owl Santuarcy By Laying An Egg

'Hoo' knew?! The owl known as Kaln, is actually a female! Kaln first arrived at Gloucester's Barn Owl Centre as a chick in 1996, and the bird's gender had never actually been checked because the bird was so healthy, according to Vincent Jones, who set up the centre. 

"You should have seen his face after he laid it. You should have seen our faces," Mr Jones said.

The staff plans to change Kaln's name to Kalnee in recognition of his newly discovered gender.
