Just For Fun - Transforming Owl

Well, I saw this video a while ago, and I thought, just to put up something new, and for something fun, I'll post this video.
This is an owl from the Republic of South Africa that 'transforms' to help defend itself from predators. The video is in Japanese, but you don't need to speak the language to understand what's going on. Depending on how big the predator approaching him is, the owl will make himself bigger to try and scare the predator away, or smaller to try and blend in with his surrounding. (If he was sitting on a tree.) One word you might hear in the video is the word 'henshin,' which Japanese for transforming or changing the body.

Here is the owl:

I think he's a cute owl. Especially when he makes himself all skinny.
