I am a strong character, but a very friendly and attractive one, if I do say so myself! I share my home with Paddy, he's a nice guy too. I like a mixture of habitats including woodlands, grassy open spaces, marshes and tropical rain forests. I have shorter, rounder wings than most of my other relatives and I do have especially sensitive large ears, if there is too much noise around me I guarantee to be a fidget! Striped Owls like me are mainly nocturnal and more active at sunset. I eat small mammals, birds, rats and mice and I can take prey heavier than myself as I have powerful talons for my size!
