Owls eat a lot of things that they can’t digest—namely, the fur, feathers, bills, claws, teeth, skulls, and bones of their prey. Lucky for the owls, 6 to 10 hours after their meal, the indigestible bits form into a pellet in its gizzard (muscular stomach) and then move to its proventriculus (glandular stomach). From there, the owl regurgitates its meal in a compressed pellet, leaving behind handy evidence of the owl’s habitat, its place in the food chain, and its predatory skills. The owl pellet featured in this set is from a barn owl, also know as the tyto alba. A handy bone guide and 2 picks makes this a quick and easy all-in-one dissection kit that is a great classroom science resource, no matter whether in a home-school setting or a standard classroom setting. Its compact size works great for a science toy to stick in your child’s stocking at Christmas, too!
Note: This owl pellet has been heat sterilized, however we highly recommend using latex gloves during your dissection. Be sure to thoroughly wash your hands after handling the pellet. Size of owl pellet varies.
