The structure of an owl’s foot is referred to as zygodactyl. What does this mean and what is special about the owl when compared to other bird's with this structure?

It means that two toes face forwards andtwo face backwards. The difference between owls and other birds having the same structure (woodpeckers) is that the third toe can sometimes be rotated forward whilst perching. Other birds are unable to do so. :whistle:

Ok :hmz:

Which bird gets its name from its crest of long feathers that look like the quill pens 19th century office workers used to tuck behind their ears and what's considered to be its favorite food?

It would be something to see yes! We're lucky by having a pair nesting here on the farm. . .
Which is the only snake that cannot be handled in the usual way (holding it behind the head)?
The next part of the question is: What is the reason for this adaptation?

:think: Would this snake be poisonous and would it's 'adaptation' look a bit like sticking out ears? :hmz:
