Find out what the owl dragged in!


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 analysis of pellets can provide a great deal of insight into the diet of barn owls. The bones of small mammals can be glued together for display. The analysis of pellets helps develop children’s manual dexterity and attention span, as well as their observation skills. Students can even take pictures of the experiment to create a presentation.
The pellets have been heat-treated to remove insects and bacteria.

    My daughter would have liked the comparison sheet to have the birds too, not just the rodents….

      Dites-lui que les oiseaux de taille ingestible par l’effraie sont en majorité des passerins qui diffèrent principalement par leur plumage et très légèrement par leur bec, et par leur squelette, diffficilment perceptible, ce qui rend une identification très difficile. les zoologistes peuvent toutefois faire des tests génétiques pour les identififer si besoin est.
      Merci 😉
