Burrowing Owl--C.B.S.

The animal that stops rodents from ruling world may disappear someday soon. The burrowing owl has brown and white fur all over the body to blend in with the dirt. It has a brown beak and it usually has light yellow eyes. Its habitat is in Mississippi, Florida, South America, Canadian Prairie, and the Caribbean islands. In late Spring and early Summer, they eat mammals such as moles and mice. The rest of the year they eat insects, especially grasshoppers and beetles. They are also known to eat birds, amphibians, and reptiles. The reason they're endangered is because of habitat destruction. So the next time you are going to build on to your house, look around and make sure you are not ruining any burrows. You wouldn't want this wonderful animal to go to waste!
