The article below: "Prehistoric Owl Successfully Cloned In Brazil – Plucks Out Scientists Eyeballs In Attack," published on websites like "allviralposts.com" is a hoax. The article claims that scientists in Brazil were able to clone an extinct giant owl specie called Ornimegalonyx. The article then claims that the cloned owl attacked the scientists and plucked their eyeballs out.
But, the bird shown in the article is the Potoo owl and not an extinct owl, prehistoric owl, alien bird, or bird from hell. Zoologist Karl Shuker confirmed that the animal is actually a Potoo bird.
