Cassie morphing Owl.

The Great Horned Owl is one of the many Flight Morphs of the Animorphs. 

Facts on the AnimalEdit

The great horned owl (Bubo virginianus), also known as the tiger owl (originally derived from early naturalists' description as the "winged tiger" or "tiger of the air") or the hoot owl,is a large owl native to the Americas. It is an extremely adaptable bird with a vast range and is the most widely distributed true owl in the Americas. Its primary diet appears to be rabbits and hares, rats and mice and voles, although it freely hunts any animal it can overtake, primarily other rodents and small mammals, but also larger mid-sized mammals, various birds, reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates. In ornithological study, the great horned owl is often compared to the Eurasian eagle-owl (Bubo bubo), a closely related species which, despite the latter's notably larger size, occupies the same ecological niche in Eurasia, and the red-tailed hawk (Buteo jamaicensis), with which it often shares similar habitat, prey and nesting habits by day and is thus something of a diurnal ecological equivalent. The great horned owl is one of the earliest nesting birds in North America, often laying eggs weeks or even months before other raptorial birds.



This Morph was first used by Cassie in The Capture. This is one of the few morphs Acquired off screen. Cassie first used this morph to stop Controller Jake from escaping. Jake was morphing falcon and OwlCassie knocked him out midmorph. In The Stranger, we learn that Rachel also got an owl morph. She uses the owl to get her Grizzly Bear morph. Jake,Marco,and Ax all get owl morphs in The Secret. Way later, in The Other, Gafinilan-Estrif-Valad uses this as his Flight Morph.


This is mostly used as secondary Flight Morph. Tobias is the only character not to have an owl morph. Due to the fact that the bird is a bit large, this is sometimes used as a flying Battle Morph. This morph is mostly used at night. This morph gets used more earlier in the series.

Books Used InEdit

Note: It didn't appear in The Secret, it was just mentioned.
