Owl pellets are a time-honored biology lab because they tell us so much about the life of a classic predator. Pellets
contain the indigestible portions of prey: beaks, bones, and hair, stored in the owl’s crop and then regurgitated in a
single mass. Because of this, it is possible to dissect a pellet and determine what the owl ate. Dissection itself is a worthy activity, and determining common prey animals is the perfect intro into discussions about the food chain, ecology,and relationships between animals.

Our kits are economical enough that students can have his own pellet or can work together in small groups. Each generously-sized (about 1.5" long) pellet is washed with antimicrobial fluids and then heat-sterilized for safety.
