If the eyes are the soul’s windows, then Jupiter has the entire Universe within his soul because his eyes contain galaxies.
Jupiter’s eyes reflect the same Universe we live in – the wondrous starry skies that shine on every clear night.
This is a Western Scots owl that became blind at a young age. Jupiter only has 10% of his vision, so he can’t be released back into the wild, so he stays at the California Wildlife Learning Center, where he gets lots of TLC.
In fact, he was named after the Greek god of heaven and thunder because of his extraordinary, golden eyes filled with the beauty of the Universe.
“In our 40 years of working with wildlife, we’ve never seen anything like this,” says the Southern California Wildlife Learning Center (WLC) team, which has cared for Zeus and his rehabilitation since 2012.
His stars are the results of protein and blood pigment clots, but he also has cataracts. His condition is possibly the result of an attack by a predator, but it is also possible that he was in a plane crash.
Due to his eye condition, he cannot be released into the wild, nor can he hunt for himself, so the WLC team is happy to help. Jupiter eats daily and loves a menu that contains proteins.
“We had seen people who were moved to tears when they met this very special owl,” they say.
“It’s remarkable that Jupiter’s disability brings so much sensitivity, sensitivity, and concern for owls and all types of wildlife and the environment we share.
Jupiter really is the best… it’s a joy. It is not just a responsibility for us to care, but a privilege. “
