Despite the name, Wallace is definitely a girl. (It is quite hard to tell boys from girls when they are tiny bundles of white fluff).
Wallace has lived with her friend, Kilmousky, the Tawny Owl, all her life. They are quite devoted to each other and together are the core of the Education Team, doing more school visits than any of the others. The Barn Owl is arguably one of the most beautiful and breath taking owls in the world.
Wallace has a calm and friendly nature and always likes to be given attention. She will greet you happily when you visit her.
