Is that what that is? Never heard of one before.
Yeah, that is what’s called a Fenec Fox. They’re from the desert areas in the Middle East, IIRC. Quite a few folks are making pets out of them because they’re cute as hell, especially when they’re pups.

Yes. Her name is Luna. She'll bite your head off. :beer:
You’re Eric the Cat, so I thought she might be The Eric. I have a Torti at home, too. Stray, wandered into my garage last year. Sweet as apple pie and very sociable.

Nice. I picked up Luna at the humane society. She loved me right away. She is super nice to me but she hates everyone else. She's on my lap purring right now. She earned her name for having the colors of a lunar eclipse.

This is the only wildlife besides an Oryx seen in the desert when I was in the Middle East. One mean cat, probably meaner than luna! ;)

Great Grey Owl








Great grey owl

Great grey owl
Whitby, Ontario
Conservation status


Least Concern (IUCN 3.1)[1]
Scientific classification
Kingdom:AnimaliaPhylum:ChordataClass:AvesOrder:StrigiformesFamily:StrigidaeGenus:StrixSpecies:
S. nebulosa
Binomial name Strix nebulosa
Forster, 1772
World distribution of S. nebulosa
The great grey owl or great gray owl (Strix nebulosa) is a very large owl, documented as the world's largest species of owl by length. It is distributed across the Northern Hemisphere, and it is the only species in the genus Strix found in both Eastern and Western Hemispheres. In some areas it is also called Phantom of the North, cinereous owl, spectral owl, Lapland owl, spruce owl, bearded owl, and sooty owl.[2]

Adults have a large rounded head with a grey face and yellow eyes with darker circles around them. The underparts are light with dark streaks; the upper parts are grey with pale bars. This owl does not have ear tufts and has the largest facial disc of any raptor. There is a white collar or "bow tie" just below the beak. The long tail tapers to a rounded end.

In terms of length, the great grey owl is believed to exceed the Eurasian eagle-owl and the Blakiston's fish owl as the world's largest owl.[3] The great grey is outweighed by those two species as well as several others, including most of the genus Bubo.[4]Much of its size is deceptive, since this species' fluffy feathers, large head and the longest tail of any extant owl obscure a body lighter than that of most other large owls. The length ranges from 61 to 84 cm (24 to 33 in), averaging 72 cm (28 in) for females and 67 cm (26 in) for males. The wingspan can exceed 152 cm (5 ft 0 in), but averages 142 cm (4 ft 8 in) for females and 140 cm (4 ft 7 in) for males. The adult weight ranges from 580 to 1,900 g (1.28 to 4.19 lb), averaging 1,290 g (2.84 lb) for females and 1,000 g (2.2 lb) for males.[5] The males are usually smaller than females, as with most owl species.[2]

The call of the adult is a series of very deep, rhythmic whoos, which is usually given in correlation to their territories or in interactions with their offspring. At other times, adults are normally silent. The young may chatter, shriek or hiss. Tame owls may produce higher-pitched hoots when given food by humans.
