Before Great Horned Owl Phineas moved to the zoo sanctuary in 2008 he had a teaching job at Turtle Bay Exploration Park near Redding, California. He learned to stand on a leather gauntlet that protected the trainer’s arm from his sharp talons. Long cords called jesses were attached to soft leather anklets on Phineas’ legs, which the trainer held to keep him safe. He’s a day-sleeper. Look for Phineas in his house or high up on the rafters
