Is it bad i hear this in predator the musical form before movie form.

[–]Ikeddit 8 points9 points  (0 children)

No.

The musical version is the correct one.

[–]Buck_Thorn 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Oh, I dunno. Squirrels have pretty good camouflage too. Their only problem is that they can't stop wagging that damned fluffy tail of theirs.

I don’t think a squirrel scrolling through Reddit and seeing this would be in too much danger.

Owl? What owl???

[–]Romval 6 points7 points  (8 children)

I think it’s a joke. There’s no owl in the picture

[–]Aldeberuhn 5 points6 points  (0 children)

You can’t see him? He’s right there next to John Cena.

[–]gb2075 24 points25 points  (4 children)

Question for anyone with knowledge on birds that I’ve always wondered:

Do these owls know what they look like? Are they able to go “ok yeah that tree looks like me imma hide there”?

[–]kagamiseki 21 points22 points  (3 children)

Without knowing about owl intelligence and self-awareness, I think it's likely the owl simply has a preference for hiding near that type of tree.

Any owls of it's kind that had other preferences were less likely to survive. Many camouflaged creatures probably aren't "aware" of their camouflaging ability per se, but probably coincidentally happen to like doing things that work well with the camouflage.

In other words, if there was an albino owl, it probably wouldn't look for white trees to hide around. It would probably still stick to brown trees, because that's their genetic preference. And it would probably die an early death. Although owls seem to be more intelligent than other animals, so if they had self-awareness this wouldn't necessarily hold true.

[–]gb2075 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Darwin ftw - this makes sense

[–]VicAlva42 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I think that is just instincts, my black cats love to sleep or be near black things, the black and white ones don't look to care so much, and the one that is almost all black, but his belly, under jaw, and paws are white(like gloves and a mask) always sleeps Hinding theses areas.

[–]gb2075 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Now there’s an idea - the owl could have been raised by other owls of the same color. The owl associates that look with safety. The tree is the same look = tree is safe.

I have no idea how owls are raised though so I could be completely off

[–]BureBressure 50 points51 points  (19 children)

What owl?

[–]aFiachra 36 points37 points  (10 children)

Yes. I am unimpressed with this photo of a log.

[–]symbologythere 5 points6 points  (8 children)

That’s a tree!

[–]aFiachra 2 points3 points  (7 children)

What tree?

[–]symbologythere 2 points3 points  (6 children)

Behind the owl!

[–]aFiachra 1 point2 points  (5 children)

What owl? Is this a zen thing?

[–]symbologythere 1 point2 points  (4 children)

The owl in front of the tree!!!!!

[–]aFiachra 1 point2 points  (3 children)

It's just a log! * pulls hair out *

[–]symbologythere 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Oh I see it now. Yep. Log.

[–]Tee-Mizzle 6 points7 points  (2 children)

It's the second owl that took me ages to notice.

[–]MintyMissterious 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Underrated comment. It's hiding really well.

[–]arsmorendi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

So basically if you are a little mouse Predator is real.

[–]Robot_Dinosaur86 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Or maybe it is a stunning example of tree camouflage and we have the whole thing backwards.

[–]luxfx 5 points6 points  (5 children)

Why does a predator of ground animals need such good camo in the trees though?

[–]PensiveObservor 6 points7 points  (2 children)

Because they can also be prey and they sleep during the day.

Also, prey animals do look around for predators. Anything improving survival chances, for prey or predator, will increase in succeeding generations.

[–]a_baby_goblin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Bigger birds

Also cats, those little bastards dont care where you hide

[–]Thund3rh3ll 4 points5 points  (2 children)

I dont understand.?. thats just a tree.

[–]LaReineAnglaise53 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Just a tree with a barely perceptible carving in its bark

[–]wolftech029 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don’t think Owl likes you taking this pic😂

[–]pinket25 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There’s an owl in your room right now. It’s just the matter of spotting it.

[–]WingsofSky 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Looks angry for some reason.

[–]damasu950 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Owl be damned

[–]longsanks 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Photoshopped to make it look unrealistic, if you look at the right side feathers you will understand.

[–]bigbowlowrong 1 point2 points  (1 child)

This particular species - Volus dubia - was used by the Norwegian Army to inform their camouflage design/ghilly suits.

Quite impressive results I think

[–]buzuli 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Doesn't there need to be an owl in the picture to demonstrate this?

[–]codemancode 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I don't want to brag, but I spotted within 2 minutes.

[–]thecraftybumblebre 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This makes me wonder how many times a beautiful owl was nearby and I just never noticed lol, nature is amazing

[–]AVeryLargeCrab 1 point2 points  (0 children)

God, it'd suck to be a squirrel near that tree

[–]Dick_Cuckingham 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]TirelessGuardian 3 points4 points  (0 children)

[–]timbillyosu 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That camouflage is pretty fowl.

[–]nopy4 2 points3 points  (11 children)

But what if it was shot from a side?

[–]styroducky 27 points28 points  (5 children)

Why would you shoot an owl?

[–]nopy4 20 points21 points  (2 children)

To prove its camo sucks?

[–]rowdy_sprout 11 points12 points  (0 children)

"But what if the camouflage wasn't in front of a background it matches" yeah it wouldn't work? What's your point

[–]cooked_fetus_kidney -3 points-2 points  (5 children)

Is it just me or is that owl looking like its horny

[–]stevenoah12 -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

Looks photoshopped... Not saying they don't have great camo, but this looks to be photoshopped...

[–]Gallade0475 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Oh wow! I can’t fucking wait for humans to kill this creature too so China can have more boner pills.

[–]dumbletter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

[–]TommyMonti77 0 points1 point  (3 children)

Question? Is the owl that color or are they attapting to the color of the tree?

[–]MHarbourgirl 8 points9 points  (2 children)

That's a Grey Owl (original name, I know, I didn't name it) sitting in a fir tree. They're big, and they really are that color. Feathers don't have chromatophores, that I know of anyway, so it's always that colour. One's been living across the river from my backyard for years. I hear it occasionally, and in the summer I'll see it flying low hunting for mice over the riverbanks.

[–]ohiowebpro1 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This tree looks like it has eyes, but when you look closely it looks like an owl

[–]EvilxBunny 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Where's the owl?

[–]Otherversian-Elite 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Surely I can’t be the only person who sees the part to the left of the branch below the owl as, like, a leg. It looks like it’s just a waist-down humanoid.

[–]BleachGel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can’t see the owl but Du Hast is blaring in the woods and I’m afraid of what happens when the beat drops!

[–]linniesss 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So glad you said it was owl! I wouldn't have known what type of camouflage

Owls are the coolest birds. I love going outside at night to hear them hoo. It's like they're saying hello

[–]ReleaseThen5404 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Owls are mysterious cool animals

[–]Orvus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Weird question, but is the owl aware that it is blending in? or does it just assume hunting is very easy because, for some reason, nobody ever sees him coming?

[–]Chartwellandgodspeed 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That is some Predator level shite right there
