An owl that has been given the nickname ‘Owls Eye’ is no dog, according to a team of scientists.
An owl with a nose that resembles a dog’s has been dubbed ‘The Owl of the Gods’ by researchers from the University of Oxford.
A study in the journal Current Biology found the owl has a complex and nuanced biology that is unlike any other bird.
Researchers from Oxford University say the owl’s appearance is not just a mark of status, but is also an indicator of intelligence and social behaviour.
The research team, led by Dr David Sayers, said the owl ‘has been shown to be intelligent, complex and highly socialised’ and is also a good model of a species at risk of extinction.
It has also been shown by a recent study to be capable of self-reproducing, and the researchers believe the owl is one of the few mammals on the planet that can.
They added that it was also a promising model for studying cognitive differences in birds.
Dr Sayers said the research team was particularly excited by the fact that the owl was able to self-regulate and could recognise faces.
He said it was not the first time the owl had been used to study intelligence.
‘We’ve also used it in a study to show how it is possible for birds to learn to recognise faces,’ Dr Sayers told the ABC.
This is the first study to compare the behaviour of a bird that has a nose to a bird with a normal nose.
However, the team said it did not take into account how the owl developed its unique facial structure.
When the researchers analysed its facial features, they found that there was no significant difference between the two species.
Professor Jonathan Jones, who led the study, said it showed that the owls intelligence was not limited to just its nose.’
This is not the case of the owl being a ‘dog’ with a snout like that of a dog.
That would be a really strong sign that the ‘owl’ is very intelligent and intelligent animals are able to evolve facial structures like that,’ he said.
One of the researchers, Dr Robert Smith, said he was surprised by the research.
I think the owl can be used as a model for understanding the cognitive abilities of birds, he said, because of the similarity in the way that they have evolved facial structure and the way they are able, when faced with an unknown situation, to learn from experience and adapt.
In the study that looked at the behaviour and morphology of the ‘baboon’ and the ‘mule’, it was found that both species could recognise a face by looking at the outline of the eye and its pupils, which is a sign that they are recognising a person.
While the ‘eye’ of the baboon was different from that of the mule, it was the ‘sights’ of both species that were different, and so the baboons eye was not a good ‘recogniser’.
Dr Jones said the study would not be able to tell if the ‘observer’ had been observing the baboos eye, or if the bird was observing the ‘bird’ and so had a ‘true’ knowledge of the person.
But he said the babonids eye was a strong candidate as a possible ‘cognitive tool’.
He also said that it may help us understand why some animals can use different methods of communication, such as a ‘showing of hands’ or ‘saying hello’.’
It’s one of those things that can help us learn more about other animals, but also about ourselves,’ he told the BBC.
But Dr Jones said he believed it was unlikely the babons eye would be used in future research.’
We can’t really say that it is a tool or a communication tool, because the eyes of the baby baboon and the adult baboon are very different,’ he added.
