Zeus the screech owl has eyes like the starry night sky due to a vitreous abnormality.





Without an iris or lens, he is effectively blind and needs to be kept in captivity, but he's still quite a looker!


Here's his story:

Bummer its blind. Imagine it swooping down to take a bite, you would stare into those eyes and lose a nose.

It's a screech owl, so not much would be lost.

I'm thinking that he may still be able to sort of see using all his other senses. He may not be able to do most things, but even a blind person can use echo location to see things. This bird should be able to do something like that.

Pretty eyes.
