Owl's sense of smell
Today is February!
I feel like I said "Happy New Year" just yesterday, but...
Maybe it's my imagination.
I'm looking forward to seeing you again in February.
Today, February 1st is "Smell Day", so I'd like to talk about owls and their sense of smell.
Owls have a very good sense of sight and hearing, but their sense of smell is not so well developed.
That's why they only eat fresh meat right after hunting, according to a research report.
This is because they can't distinguish the freshness of meat by smell.
At owlvillage, we do not allow the use of excessive perfume when interacting with the owls.
This is to prevent the owls from inhaling the alcohol and volatile toxins contained in the perfume (since owls have not developed the ability to eliminate toxins from their bodies).
So, the disinfectant that we ask you to do before entering the owl's room is not alcohol disinfectant!
The answer to the often-asked question, "I have a cat (or dog) at home, will the smell alert them?"
The answer is "no."
They are very cautious creatures by nature, so they are very wary of new people and things.
They need time to get used to it, so please watch over them gently.
This was a story about the owl's sense of smell, which is not known to many people!
