Lovely Owls!

Meet Molla. She is an Internet star and her name means 'spring' in Italian. She got it because she likes to jump up and down a lot.

The Falconieri delle Orobie are a family from the town of Villa d'Adda, Italy, who became so enamoured with the barn owl a family friend gave their daughter, Martina, they decided to make the adoption of nocturnal and diurnal raptors their full-time hobby. Their sanctuary currently hosts 22 barn owls and became famous after a YouTube video of Martina petting an owl went viral. 11 million people watched it, including us. Consequently, we couldn't fight the urge to go and see the lovely owls ourselves.
