Adopt An Owl

Snappy is our male great horned owl. He arrived at AWCC in 1999 from Anchorage after suffering a gunshot wound. He is a partial wing amputee and has a permanent home at AWCC.

The great horned owls have remarkable eyesight which helps them hunt their main prey, the snowshoe hare and other small mammals. Owl’s powerful feet have outer toes that can rotate so that two toes point forward and two backward. This arrangement permits a strong, symmetrical grip on squirming prey.
