Northern White-Faced Owl, also known as Professor Konoha, is an owl Friend who made appearances in the Kemono Friends anime as well as the original mobile game.


Northern White-Faced Owl has short steely-gray hair with black tones on the top of her head and to the side of her bangs. Furthermore, her very front bangs has a slight yellow coloration to represent the beak. Her animal-like characteristics can be seen in her hair. On the side of her head, she has hairs that act as her wings. She also has two pointed hairs between the bangs that represent the ear-like plumage distinctive of her species and a tail as well. She wears a buttoned coat with a fur-like collar, pockets, and rounded cuffs. Her jacket has a pattern that represents the pattern design on the owl's body. She also has amber colored eyes, white leggings, and light-yellow gloves, and light-yellow mary-janes that mimic the design of her species. She wields a wooden sickle.

In Real Life

The northern white-faced owl is found in a band across Africa between the Sahara and the Equator. Like all owls, they can rotate their heads and necks as much as 270°. Owls have 14 neck vertebrae compared to seven in humans, which makes their necks more flexible.

Norther White-faced Owls have a unique defense mechanism. When faced with a predator slightly larger than it, the bird flares its wings to appear larger. When faced with something much larger than itself, it pulls its feathers inwards, elongates its body, and narrows its eyes to thin slits.
