Nature hides all kinds of secrets, but some of them happen to be hidden in plain sight, right before our eyes.
There's a lot many of us don't know about animals we see on a regular basis, and some facts can catch us totally by surprise.
One of these surprises came in the form of a Reddit post. A user posted photos of an owl, one way more surprising than the other.
The first photo is of the animal as we normally see him, perhaps at a zoo or in the wild. But in the second photo, the user lifts up the animal's bottom feathers to reveal his legs.
As it turns out, they appear to be very, very long.
Most of the owl's legs are covered, so we can't see just how unusually long they are! You can scroll down to see them for yourself.
