Baloo, Indian Eagle Owl

Baloo the Bengal is an Indian or Bengal Eagle Owl. He was collected at 18 days old as a bundle of fluff and is being hand reared by Ashley.

Indian or Bengal Eagle Owls are one of the larger owls with males reaching an impressive 2 1/2 lbs in weight and sporting a 5 foot wingspan. Found in many parts of India, Bengals prefer to hunt during the day for a wide variety of small mammals and birds.

Baloo is growing up fast. Hes now fully feathered on his wings and tail and has become VERY playful. His favourite toy is some scrunched up paper, which he loves to pounce on and carry about.
