Two burrowing owlets having fun with their new HUMAN caretaker!
Linford and Christie were born six weeks ago in Andover, England and they are being hand reared to become a part of Longleat Safari and Adventure Park's Birds of Prey exhibit.
These owls are TOO cute!
Burrowing owls are active during the day and get their names for living in underground burrow instead of trees like other owls.
The owlets are so tiny they can fit in tea cups!
Caretaker Jimmy Robinson says the following about his bundles of joy:
Basically I have had to have them with me 24 hours a day every day and that means taking them home with me in the evening and getting up in the middle of the night to feed them.
I spend so much time with them they do look at me as their surrogate mom and will follow me around the house or sit on my shoulder.
They also enjoy the security of sitting inside their teacups and like to find small spaces on my bookshelf and in between my DVD collection to snuggle up into.
Can we take these owls home too?!?! They are totally ADORBZ!!!
