Snowy Owl at Antwerp Zoo, also known as Zoo Antwerpen or Zoo d'Anvers (Belgium)

The Snowy Owl is a large, white owl of the typical owl family. Snowy Owls are native to Arctic regions in North America and Eurasia. Males are almost all white, while females have more flecks of black plumage. Juvenile Snowy Owls have black feathers until they turn white. The Snowy Owl is a ground nester that primarily hunts rodents and waterfowl, and opportunistically eats carrion. Most owls sleep during the day and hunt at night,
but the Snowy Owl is active during the day, especially in the summertime.
