Learn about owls and the animals they eat by doing an owl pellet dissection. This complete kit comes with a jumbo owl pellet (2" or larger), dissection tools, instructions, identification key, and bone sorting chart. Jumbo-size owl pellets are 2" or larger and typically contains multiple skeletons. They can also be broken in half or pieces for multiple students to work individually. Each jumbo owl pellet is wrapped and dry heat sterilized. This is a great kit for learning about food chains, too!
The following questions might help you come up with a good science project: What does the number of different bones you found tell you about a barn owl's eating habits? (You might compare multiple pellets.) Can you construct a food chain for the barn owl? Look for more info in our Owl Pellet Lab dissection project.
A similar kit with large pellets is also available in a classroom-sized owl pellet kit for up to 30 students.
Safety Information: Our owl pellets have been dry heat sterilized for a minimum of 4 hours at 250°F to kill bacteria and viruses naturally present. Even so, we highly recommend that you follow these guidelines when working with owl pellets:
