Opossums are often under appreciated animals. Did you know that opossums very rarely carry rabies, and they are quite clean creatures? Their low body temperature of 94-97º makes it difficult for the virus to survive in an opossum's body. #worldbird

The bald eagle has a wingspan of around 7 feet. They are well built to soar on thermals of air, saving energy by gliding across the sky. Here’s a beautiful photo of Clark in flight by @eaglemandan. #worldbirdsanctuary #clarktheeagle #baldeagle
@rehcaz3 I heard that eagles in Alaska have a larger wingspan than ours in Missouri. Is that true?

It is possible to see all nine of these owls in the state of Missouri, but I've actually only seen five. Can you identify all nine? For me, it is always a special thrill to see or hear any owl in the wild and I will continue a passive pursuit of

@ringoismybird @worldbirdsanctuary what causes mineralization?
@worldbirdsanctuary @ringoismybird There can be many causes, but mineralization happens when a mineral like calcium builds up in body tissue, blood vessels, or organs.

@pheenix33 @worldbirdsanctuary I had written also that I would like to have a bird like Raven, but of course the kind that it would be ok to have at home, I'm just not sure what would be the best pet, that is close to a Raven like bird.

@bri__rose @jellie.been that's my favorite picture I have of him right now, it's my background on my phone. I'm pretty sure that was his face when he got the first glimpse of his crate after a fly off.

The peregrine falcon is the fastest animal on the planet! What an amazing creature. By utilizing their speed, peregrines are able to catch aerial prey like ducks right out of the sky. #worldbirdsanctuary #peregrinefalcon
@shumway03 I love peregrines. They’re my favorite animal
@worldbirdsanctuary @chrissy667083 This one is a juvenile, so the plumage is a bit different than an adult. But there are also several subspecies with different looks to them.
