Mutant Owl

Ignacio sends me this video of an owl able to change its appearance depending on the “enemy” that he is facing. If he faces a small enemy then he adopts a threatening appearance, but if he faces an owl bigger than him he tries to conceal himself adopting a “branch” shape (if you see if from far away).

If you don’t understand Japanese you can start the video from the first minute.

    That is awesome, and also, I love Japanese television sfx. The eye blink and head turn gave me a few laughs.

    I don’t know if they said this in the commentary that accompanied the video, but I think the owl was trying to look like a cat.
