KOBE, Japan, April 13 (UPI) -- A tiny pet owl in Japan is rising to viral fame after showing off its equestrian skills by riding around a room on the back of a toy horse.

The video, posted to Twitter, shows Momo the red-footed mori owl taking a leisurely ride around a room in the Bibi & George Kobe Owl Cafe on the back of a toy horse.


The horse plays music and shakes its body as it moves, but the owl appears unperturbed and continues its ride.

Videos posted to Instagram by other visitors to the cafe indicate the horse is among Momo's favorite toys.
