They can thermally detect any living thing around you giving a strong pvp advantage. Like a night vision with wings. Plus they can put you and your allies in stasis and heal you whilst being an ice cube. Decent airborne mount -
If you are taming something and have an owl, you can use its freezing ability to heal it. It does not affect torpor or taming effectiveness. This way if the dino gets hit, you can heal it fully, and then let it wake up so you can try again without the risk of killing it.
The Snow Owl has the Ability to heal nearby tamed creatures, however, it uses up its stamina.
The Snow Owl works like the Argentavis, except it has a thermal vision as another one of its cool abilities. They also perform a dive just like the griffin as well!
Ok so tamed and started raising these jerks. Be forewarned they are fatties! We had 2 eggs one came out twins and the other egg just 1. They eat meat so quickly. One thing said the speed of a giga no they have to be faster than a giga! Timed them going through 1 stack and it was about a minute for a whole for a full 30 stack of cooked. We killed the lowest and and did slow down a bit but still in the minute range. My advice is to do one at a time is possible and fill as many fridges as you can before hand. Tek troughs (unless they hold more) wouldnt matter cause they pretty much eat it before it can spoil! You have been warned!
