 Tyto Alba (Dead)

Tyto Alba is the most widely distributed species of Strigiformes and one of the most widespread of all Aves, found almost everywhere in the world except polar or desert regions. Most are between 33 and 39 cm in length, with wingspans ranging from 80 - 95cm.

Tyto Alba does not hoot, but utters an eerie, drawn-out shriek. With their accute hearing, they specialise in hunting animals on the ground; nearly all of their food consisting of small mammals.
