A small white bird that hunts in the coldest reaches of the world.

Snowy owls are a species of bird who can be found spawning individually in tundras. While carnivorous, they are benign and under half the size of a cat, doing nothing but fly across the area aimlessly, proving no threat to a dwarf whatsoever. All snowy owls are born with Legendary skill in climbing.

Snowy owls can be captured in cage traps and trained into cheap exotic pets. They produce a tiny amount of returns when butchered and lay a meager amount of eggs if placed in a nest box, being only really useful as livestock if no domestic birds are available.

Some dwarves like snowy owls for their coloration and their yellow eyes.

Admired for its yellow eyes.
