Guess what the author’s holding…
Claire Benton-Evans says: “This is an eagle owl, one of the biggest owls in the world. You may have heard that owls are wise, but in fact they are rather stupid: I gave this one a snack and he forgot that he had it in his mouth half way through eating it!”
The Bible says two things about owls:
- They are wild animals and they belong in the wilderness, along with jackals, wild goats, hedgehogs and ostriches (yes, really) Isaiah 34:11-14
- Don’t eat them! Leviticus 11:17 You can read more about disgusting things not to eat in Beastly Bible Stories 2.
