They have very strong talons, and can easily crush the skull of a rabbit.
European Eagle Owls (Bubo bubo) are one of the worlds largest owl species, with a female's wingspan ranging from 4 to 6 feet.
They swallow food whole, including feathers, fur and bones. Materials that the body can't digest are regurgitated as pellets each day.
Their eyes are fixed and their heads can rotate almost 270 degrees around.
The largest item of prey recorded being taken by a European Eagle Owl was a Roe Deer weighing 13kg.
