|Spectacled Owl||Nexon Game|
The Spectacled Owl is a type of owl Friend that appeared in the original Kemono Friends mobile game.
Spectacled Owl has short black hair with darker tones on the tips of her wings and to the sides of her front bangs. Further in details, she borrows some appearance traits from the animal she's based on, the beak is represented by her yellow-tinted forelock and the bird's eyes are represented by the glasses she's wearing along with the white stripes on her fronthead and to the side of her bangs. Similarly to the bird, her owl's tail is striped beige and raw amber. Her eyes are yellow.
Her outfit is composed of an apron-like dress with fur around the edges, a fur-like collar with a medium-sized red bow. Inside her dress, she wears a dark blouse on which the sleeves are patterned like the owl plumage, with curved hatchings. She also wears yellow-brown leggings, light-yellow gloves, and fur boots with small-sized red ribbons on them. She wields a wooden geologist's hammer.
In Real Life
The Spectacled Owl is common resident in many kinds of lowland tropical forest such as rainforest, savanna woodland and dry forest. It occurs throughout the tropical regions of South America from northern Argentina to southern Mexico. Due to its reclusive and nocturnal habits it is seldom seen, but its distinctive pulsating vocalizations are a common aspect of the nocturnal chorus in Neotropical lowland forest. It is polytypic with six subspecies recognized, differentiated on the basis of variations in underparts coloration and patterning. There is also subtle subspecific variation in voice. It forages nocturnally, feeding primarily on vertebrates up to the size of opossums, rabbits, and skunks. It is distinctive throughout most of its range, but appears very similar to the Tawny-browed Owl (Pulsatrix koeniswaldiana) of southeast Brazil and Paraguay, from which it differs in voice and in the coloration of their facial spectacles. When heard, it may be confused with it congener, the Band-bellied Owl (Pulsatrix melanota), which inhabits lower elevations in the Andes.
