Funny, laid back tawny owl thinks he's human
Treacle the owl goes for a bike ride Apparently hand reared owls can think that they are, in fact, human. Treacle, a six year old tawny owl brought up by his keeper, Jenny Smith in Eccleshall, Staffordshire, UK, is one such bird. Jenny has let Will and Guy know that because he is a rather lazy and laid back owl she allowed him to ride on the handlebars of her bike. M/S Smith commented, 'I think Treacle likes being on the bike because owls are notoriously lazy. So this way he doesn't have to do any exercise and he can sit around and look at his surrounding area to see what's going on. We do fly him and he does enjoy flying but I suppose the bike feels like he's flying but without putting in the effort.' We have discovered that the Gentleshaw Wildlife Centre, where Treacle lives, also has a monkey that likes scribbling and a hawk that only likes women. Owls' Natural History Owls are an order of birds of prey. Most are solitary, and nocturnal. Owls mostly hunt small mammals, insects, and other birds, though a few species specialize in hunting fish. They are found in all regions of the Earth except Antarctica, most of Greenland, and some remote islands. What did the owl say to the other owl? Whooo are yoou?
Red squirrel (Sciurus vulgaris)Fascinating Fact: Squirrels are able to swim and they are either left handed or right handed. The red squirrel is native to Great Britain, but its future is increasingly uncertain as the introduced American grey squirrel expands its range across the mainland. There are estimated to be only 140,000 red squirrels left in Britain, with over 2.5 million greys. The British Forestry Commission is working with partners in projects across Britain to develop a long-term conservation strategy that deters greys and encourages reds.
Anglesey's claims to fame are:Land of Welsh mythology - the home of Merlin and his spells. The Holyhead ferry to Ireland. The longest place name with a railway station in the United Kingdom: Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch It's not just hippos that benefit from the tick birds cleansing their skin of parasite, antelope and gazelle also host these benign birds.
