Hey, I'm making a judgement call on this one — That "glowing owl" clip has got
to be a hoax documentary. A bird that emits 200+ lumens
from its eyes? C'mon. What do the tribesmen feed it, rechargeable lithium batteries?
My guess is, somebody took some really great night time footage of the African Spotted Eagle Owl and noticed that its eyes mirrored back
starlight scope (as do the eyes of many nocturnal predators); then they probably went back to the studio and manufactured the hoax documentary with a
few ILM-style digital tricks.
Damned good effects in that deer-hunting scene, I must admit.
