Great Horned Owl Egg (replica)

Bubo virginianus

The name of the great horned owl is inspired by the tufts above its ears. It is found in a wide variety of habitats, more than any other owl. It will nest in an old hawk's or crow's nest, pester a nesting bald eagle pair enough that they abandon their nest and it takes over, sometimes it will make its own nest, and occasionally the great horned owl will nest in tree cavities or buildings. The female usually lays 2-3 eggs. As this owl's diet consists mostly of mammals, including skunks, its nest may be smelly. In addition to mammals, it will also eat other birds.

All Bone Clones products are life size replicas, unless otherwise noted. As with all Bone Clones® products, only the finest casting materials are used to cast our North American bird egg series. Expert artists paint each with meticulous care to match the eggs that were used in the casting process. Each egg is hand painted with permanent dyes and sealed with a resistant coating that makes it ideal for handling, study, teaching, as well as for display. In nature, eggs vary from region to region as well as from bird to bird. The colors and patterns used were determined by the egg used as well as reference material to find a happy medium that would be representative of the species.
