The owls became popular as pets thanks to the “Harry Potter” saga. Their heart-shaped head and they large eyes make them mysterious animals that captivate us with great ease. However, they are solitary and very territorial animals, also they are predators; the captivity is not made for them.
Besides, like all of the above, these animals require very special care to have them in captivity. Having an owl is a lifelong commitment; because a small owl can live for over 20 years but a big one can even live to 50 years.
Any animal lover should rule out the possibility of having an owl as a pet. Do NOT cage an animal that needs freedom, the owl is not made to live sad and locked.
