    Great Hands-on Activity Makes Science Come Alive
  • Melanie

  • I'm really glad we ordered the "large" size. I'm not sure we would have had much to explore with smaller sizes. We found skulls of several rodents and even a bird! Some of the kids were grossed out at first but really got into exploring these. It was helpful to do these on top of colored darker paper as it helped the bones to stand out more from the other contents. They are a little stiff after being baked/sterillized but, I didn't want to worry about possible germs. You can spray them with a little water in a spray bottle to soften them and make picking out the bones easier. This is an activity that really made science come alive for us.
    well worth the $$

  • I was little disappointed with the size of the pellets, but my kids were not at all disappointed with all they found in the pellets.
    Great product

      Owl pellet, large

      This is a 1-1/2" or larger owl pellet without instructions. This owl pellet is discount priced and ideal for classroom situations when you don't need instructions or you want to print instructions from our Owl Pellet Lab. Each large owl pellet is foil wrapped and dry heat sterilized.

      Owl pellets are the regurgitated remains of an owl's meal, including all the bones of the animals it ate. Owls usually swallow their food whole, digest the edible parts, and then expel the indigestible parts through their mouth as a pellet.

      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:

      • Work in a place separate from eating and food preparation areas.
      • Use disposable latex gloves or nitrile gloves during the dissection and cleanup.
      • Use a disposable tray or plate to contain the owl pellet during dissection. Do not dissect directly on desks or table tops.
      • Use only dissection tools provided. Do not let children use pencils or other personal items for dissection. Kids like to use our economical plastic forceps to take apart the owl pellet.
      • Use a sanitizer with paper towels or disposable sanitizing wipes to thoroughly wash hands, work areas, and any dissection tools when finished. Household bleach in a 1:10 solution can be used as a sanitizer.
      • Make sure everyone thoroughly washes their hands with soap and water after the dissection and cleanup.

      WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

      Shipping Note: This item contains preserved specimens and only ships to a street address in the 50 US states.
