Owls are fascinating creatures with many interesting traits. Did you know that owls can rotate their heads up to 270 degrees? This incredible flexibility allows them to see in almost every direction without moving their bodies. They are also known for their excellent night vision and silent flight, which make them stealthy hunters. These captivating facts about owls can be fun conversation starters while crafting the puppet and can add an educational twist to the activity.
