The Owl is a critter that spawns on the surface Forest during the night. Owl has only 5 health and no defense, and can be damaged by other enemies and players.

Owl can be caught with any Bug Net to be carried around in the inventory and released later, or crafted into animated decorative furniture (Owl Cage). Once crafted, the Owl cannot be released again.

Owl can be spawned by the Owl Statue, however statue-spawned critters cannot be caught with any Bug Net, and will disappear in a puff of smoke when the player attempts to do so.
