Owls 

 

 

  

                          Owls cannot turn their heads 360 degrees.

 

 

 

 It does appear that they can by just watching them,

 

but after studying them scientists have discovered

 

they do not actually turn their head 360 degrees.

 

  •  
 

Owls have fixed eye sockets,

 

which means they can’t move their eyeballs.

 

In order to see their surroundings, they instead rotate

 

their heads up to 270 degrees in either direction.

 

Owls do not have two pivot sockets

 

in their neck like humans do.

 

Since they only have one neck socket and small bones

 

 

that make up the neck and spine,

 

they are able to move their heads

 

 

in such a wide range of motion

 

to compensate for this lack.
