Unmoveable Owl Eyes

Owls are unable to move their eyes in the sockets because of the size and tubular shape.

To compensate the fact that they are unable to move their sockets, they have a long flexible neck which enables them to turn their head 270° in either direction horizontally and at least 90° vertically.
