The owl we present to you today is less than 6 inches. This elf owl is considered the smallest owl in the world for a reason.
When night falls, this owl comes out of its roost, which is in a hole in a sycamore tree, and looks for its prey.
In Texas and southern Arizona you can meet these beautiful creatures.
Although elven owls look very calm, they are certainly deadly.
In the beginning, only the father elf owl goes to get food for his family, but later the mother does the same.
When attacked by other owls, elf owls often know how to escape. However, when they are unable to escape, they play dead to avoid combat.
One thing is for sure, these little owls are really adorable.
