What eats an owl?

What do owls eat?

Owls do not have many predators. In some places, eagles sometimes kill and eat owls, and smaller kinds, or species, of owls are sometimes killed and eaten by larger types of owls.

Serpents that can climb trees will eat baby owls or owl eggs if they get the chance.

Beyond that, however, owls do not have many natural enemies.

As for what owls eat—they eat a variety of small animals, including rodents and other avians.
