Snowy owls live in the Arctic Tundra. This includes places like north of North America, Greenland, north of Europe and Asia. When breeding season comes, snowy owls remain in the Arctic Tundra.
These owls have white feathers with light gray spots. The white feather protects the snowy owl from the cold and camouflages them against enemies. When they spread their wings, they could reach up to 4 -5 feet (1.2 - 1.5m) wide.
The snowy owls prey on lemmings for most of the time. However, on the some occasion, they feed on larger preys like hares, gulls, and ducks. During years when food supply is scarce, these owls migrate south to search for food.
The nests of snowy owls are shallow and hollow holes in the ground. They are usually located on the slightly raised ground on the tundra floor. The average clutch size is 8 - 15 eggs. Each egg needs 32 -33 days of incubation. They hatch in 2 - 4 intervals.
