When owls and owls eat, they regurgitate the indigestible parts of their prey such as hairs, feathers and bones. By dissecting a rejection pellet, we can learn about the way of life of barn owls. So budding biologists, will you be able to reconstruct the skeleton of their prey to find what animal was on the owl’s menu?
One medium pellet per unit. Measures between 3.75 and 5 cm long (1 1/2 – 2”) wrapped in aluminum foil. Include small pliers and a bamboo poker to help in dissection.
The pellets have been heat-treated to remove insects and bacteria.
Make sure you learn about the barn owl with our video playlist, including a live cam.
