These fluffy owls are known as the Elf Owls (Micrathene whitneyi) and are the world’s lightest owls. Typically, these raptors are native to the southwestern United States and Mexico. They, on average, can weigh approximately 40 grams (1.4 oz) and have fairly long legs to give them added height.. Just kidding, their legs are for hunting insects and scorpions! Males and females will play with each other after dusk and sunset, by jumping from tree to tree letting their famous high-pitched whinnies fill the night air.
