Snowy Owl Eyes
Date: Summer 2011
Why are snowy owls eyes large and yellow?
Owls have huge eyes to help them see in the dark. Owls come out at
night (meaning they are nocturnal) and hunt for mice and other small
animals in the dark. Their huge eyes help them to have night vision!
Different kinds of owls have different colors of eyes, it all depends
on the species.
