    The Eurasian Eagle Owl is the largest species. It has an average length of 24-29 inches, a 5-6 foot wingspan, and it weighs 3.5-9 pounds. Some people claim that the Great Grey Owl has larger individuals, but this is due to their voluminous feathers.

    While this is a current topic of debate, most specialist agree that the Eurasian Eagle Owl is the largest owl in the world.  This is because it has the largest average weight and length.  Some sources claim that the Great Gray Owl is the largest in the world, due to its ability to grow much larger than its species’ average.  A third candidate for the largest owl in the world is the Blakiston’s Fish Owl, which does not have a published average weight but has a known maximum weight larger than the Eurasian Eagle Owl.
