Product Description

Details

Unlike most other owls, Burrowing Owls are active during the day and at night. They tend to hunt insects in daylight and small mammals under the cover of darkness. Burrowing Owls rely on some mammals to help them survive. Ground squirrels, prairie dogs and other digging mammals create the holes, or burrows, that Burrowing Owls use to roost and nest in. The scientific name for Burrowing Owl is Athene cunicularia. Athene refers to the Greek goddess of wisdom, whose favorite bird was an owl. The Latin word cunicularia, means a miner or burrower. Thus, its scientific name could be translated as "wise burrower."

Jabebo earrings inspiration for these comes from visiting nature centers, wildlife refuges, parks, gardens, museums and all kinds of other interesting locations. Post-consumer cereal box cardboard is used to construct the earrings. Print and images from the cardboard packaging is visible on the reverse of the earrings.
