Siberian Eagle Owl Bubo bubo sibiricus – “Sugar Puff”

Found: Central to Western Siberia

The Siberian Eagle Owl prefers mountainous forest, semi-desert and rocky slopes. Being the biggest owl in the world it will take large birds, a variety of small and medium mammals, rabbits and hares, roe deer fawns, young foxes, hedgehogs, frogs, newts, crabs and farmyard cats. Whereas most diurnal birds rely on speed of impact to kill their prey, the Siberian Eagle Owl uses its 250 pounds per square inch crushing power (in each foot!) to obtain its meal. The Siberian Eagle Owl will have between one and three offspring, with each owlet taking twelve weeks to go from egg to fully grown owl.
Status: Widespread but scarce everywhere, locally endangered.
