This is Spock. He’s a great horned owl, and he wants to eat you.

Not really, but badass, right?

And these are the Kooks, Boomer and Roo. A pair of laughing kookaburras.

These raptors and their human Bryony were all in to The Zone a few weeks ago. Do check out the video, especially at the 6-minute mark for an amazing reaction from Dylan when Spock tries to take off from Bryony’s Arm three feet from Dylan’s head.
