Bubo, in Greek Mythology, was a robotic replica of Athena's beloved magical owl of the same name.
Bubo was forged by Hephaestus and sent by Athena to aid Perseus in his quest to save the princess Andromeda in the original 1981 film, where Bubo helps him overcome numerous enemies.
The Great Horned Owl, also known as the Tiger Owl, is a large owl native to the Americas. It is an adaptable bird with a vast range and is the most widely distributed true owl in the Americas.
The Great Horned Owl is the heaviest extant owl in Central and South America and is the second heaviest owl in North America, after the closely related but very different looking Snowy Owl. It ranges in length from 17–25 inches and has a wingspan of 36–60 inches. Females are invariably somewhat larger than males. An average adult is around 22 inches long with a 49 inch wingspan and weighing about 3.1 pounds. Depending on subspecies, the Great Horned Owl can weigh from 1.3 to 5.7 pounds. Among standard measurements, the tail measures 6.9–9.8 inches long, the wing chord measures 12.3–15.7 inches, the tarsal length is 2.1–3.1 inches and the bill is 1.3–2.0 inches.
There is considerable variation in plumage coloration but not in body shape. This is a heavily built, barrel-shaped species that has a large head and broad wings. Adults have large ear tufts and it is the only very large owl in its range to have them. The facial disc is reddish, brown or gray in color and there is a variable sized white patch on the throat. The iris is yellow, except in the amber-eyed South American Great Horned Owl. Its "horns" are neither ears nor horns, simply tufts of feathers. The underparts are usually light with some brown barring; the upper parts are generally mottled brown. Most subspecies are barred along the sides as well. The legs and feet are covered in feathers up to the talons, with some black skin peeking out from around the talons. The feet and talons are distinctly large and powerful and only other Bubo owls have comparably formidable feet. There are individual and regional variations in color. Birds from the subarctic are a washed-out, light-buff color, while those from Central America can be a dark chocolate brown.
Its call is normally a low-pitched but loud ho-ho-hoo hoo hoo but it can occasionally be reduced to four syllables instead of five. The female's call is higher and rises in pitch at the end of the call. Young owls still in the care of their parents make loud, persistent hissing or screeching sounds that are often confused with the calls of the Barn Owl.
