Fluffy animals bearing those big, bulging eyes are sights to behold. It is a well known fact that such adorable balls of craziness can make anyone’s soul melt away. Wait till you meet Zeus who takes this feeling to a whole new level. Infact, let me introduce you to him now.
This Western screech owl may have blind eyes but notice how they resemble sparkling galaxies. It is as if they could shoot an entire Star Wars movie in there. You must be wondering what makes this beauty blind. Well, there are a number of reasons. Those twinkling eyes are attributed to clots of blood pigment and protein. Add to that the fact that the poor owl has cataracts.
Chances are that the owl had a flying accident and there is every likelihood that it was attacked by some predator. For those who are curious, the owl lost 10 percent of his sight which is why he can not be let out in the open. As a result, Wildlife Learning Center in California has taken up the responsibility to offer it the care it requires.
