Wilpattu National Park Safari

Did you know that the Brown Fish-Owl is the most common species of Owl in Sri Lanka? Although this large owl is named after its fish-based diet, it is also known to eat frogs, crabs, and other small aquatic creatures. Its talons are specially adapted to catch live fish from running water, and to see one of them fishing is a spectacular sight indeed!

Do you think the Brown Fish-Owl’s colour helps it blend in with tree trunks, or if it’s just there to keep it warm?
