Learn about owls and the animals they eat by doing an owl pellet dissection. This complete kit comes with a large owl pellet (1-1/2" or larger), dissection tools, instructions, identification key, and bone sorting chart. Each large owl pellet is foil 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.
This kit is also available in a classroom sized 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:
