Inktober 11/31

Forest Owlet

Population: less than 250
Status: Critically endangered
Population trend: declining

"The critically endangered Forest Owlet has an extremely small and fragmented population in central India. The species was originally placed with three others in the genus Athene, but has since been reclassified, now occupying its own genus Heteroglaux. Previously feared extinct, this species was rediscovered in 1997 in the state of Maharashtra, 113 years after the last confirmed record. Unlike most of its nocturnal relatives, this owlet is diurnal, hunting lizards, birds and rodents in daylight hours. Whilst surveys continue to discover more individuals, habitat fragmentation caused by the continued loss of deciduous forest is likely to result in a further decline in this species."

I decided to dedicate this years inktober mostly to endangered, extinct or enslaved animal species. 
In November I'll sell some of the originals to raise money for local animal shelters. <3
