If there are nine chicks in the clutch, parents will have to provide about 1,500 lemmings to feed the ravenous chicks until they're ready to go out on their own.
Unlike other raptors that carry prey in their talons, owls sometimes carry prey with their beak, and usually swallow small prey items whole. Bones, fur and other indigestible items are regurgitated as pellets!
