For the first time at Gulf Breeze Zoo, a pair of spectacled owls have a chick.
The owlet is 5 weeks old and very healthy, according to the zoo.
Spectacled owls are from Central and South America and live primarily in dense forests. Females lay 1 to 2 eggs and incubate them for roughly 5 weeks before hatching.
Both parents will care for the owlet, taking turns feeding and protecting the nest. The young owlet will be dependent on its parents for almost 1 year.
