Types of Raptors

Did you know that you can own predatory birds? You don’t have to live in the world of Harry Potter to own an owl, but don’t expect your owl to show affection. Raptors stay wild, so you have to show falcons, hawks, and owls respect.

Permits & Preparation

You have to obtain a permit from the government or the wildlife service to own any kind of wild animal. You can train birds of prey to respond to food and commands, but they will always be wild.

Strategies for Proper Care

When you own a raptor, you can’t treat it like a normal pet. It won’t likely show affection, and you’ll have to respect its space. It needs a different kind of diet too. Don’t just assume that you can cuddle with it!
