Kelly Osbourne has made friends with an eagle-owl.

The 30-year-old presenter has struck up a close bond with the brown-feathered creature named Mello after it gave her a ''religious experience'' by landing on her arm.

The lilac-haired beauty took to her Instagram account on Sunday (06.09.15) to share a series of photos of herself with the bird as it came in to land on her leather glove after flight.

Reaching up into the air as Mello perched on her fingers, Kelly captioned the shot: ''I have a new friend her name is #Mello she is an Eagle owl & she is one bad ass b**ch!''

Just moments later, the former 'Fashion Police' star uploaded a short clip of the beautiful bird landing on her glove as it flapped its wings and attempted to gain balance, while Kelly lowered her arm, made a kiss noise and stroked her fluffy back.

She accompanied the video with the caption: ''Me and #Mello! This magnificent creature just gave me a religious experience #NewBestFriend.''

She then posed for a close-up with her new best bud as they both made a shocked expression with their mouths for the camera and gave their best sultry stare.

Commenting on their similar pose, Kelly wrote: ''#Twinsies with #Mello (sic).''
