Asked in Birds of Prey, Owls
What do owls eat besides rabbits and other owls?
that depends largely on the species of owl, but most owls eat lots of mice and rats, and desert owls (and others) eat lots of snakes. owls eat quite a few insects, and the larger owls will even occasionally eat foxes. some owls eat fish, and are adept fishers. northern owls eat lemmings in abundance. owls will also eat other birds and eggs, as well as squirrels and almost every rodent you can think of.
