Here’s a Halloween treat that’s little less horrific than our usual offerings. But this video of baby owl Oakley bopping along to the Monster Mash was too awesome not to share.
While Oakley looks like he’s keeping good time with the beat, apparently this is totally normal owl behaviour. According to OwlPages: “Many species will bob and weave their head, as if curious about something – this is in fact to further improve their three-dimensional concept of what they are viewing.”
On their YouTube channel, Raptor Rehabber tells us Oakley is a baby great horned owl. Oakley was released back into the wild about six weeks after this was filmed.
Check out the video below for an early Halloween treat!
