There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Great. I remember another one made by the Lindblads ('Our Tigers'). It was broadcasted on Dutch television a long time ago. Best one I saw. I only found a clip of the documentary (posted on the tiger extinction thread), but maybe you can find more. Give it a try and thanks in advance.

Burrowing Owl (Speotyto cunicularia) small 22 cm. diurnal Owls with long legs, they are very active living in pairs in open spaces inside Burrows, normally they dont go too far from their burrows because they are prey of eagles and larger owls. They have as many as 10 chicks during the dry season where it is easier for them to find treir prey (insects, little mammals, small snakes and scorpions)

Cuba`s extint gian owl, Ornimegalonyx

The Cuban giant owl or giant cursorial owl (Ornimegalonyx) is an extinct genus of giant owl that measured 1.1 metres (3 ft 7 in) and it problably exceeded 9 kg (20 lb). It looked a lot like the small Burrowing Owl (Speotyto cunicularia) it is believed to be the largest owl that ever existed. It lived on the island of Cuba.
The Cuban giant owl is believed to have preyed principally on large rodents including Heteropsomys, Capromys, Geocapromys, and Macrocapromys (the size of modern nutria or capybara) and the ground sloths Cubanocnus, Miocnus, Mesocnus, and Megalocnus.It was probably an ambush predator that would pounce on unsuspecting prey with its crushing talons.
The first fossil specimen was mistakenly described as a bird in the family Phorusrhacidae, in part because the bones were so large. In 1961, Pierce Brodkorb reviewed the findings and placed them properly, with the owls. Remains have been abundant throughout the island, in cave deposits from the Late Pleistocene period (126,000 to 11,700 years ago) and at least three nearly complete skeletons have been found.
