Owl Pellets DIY Dissect it Yourself Family Lab

Owls swallow their prey whole or in chunks and regurgitate pellets of undigested material, including bones and fur. Owl pellet dissection provides the opportunity to investigate and identify bones, compare and sort the skeletons of prey, and learn about the characteristics and habits of owls. This is an introductory dissection activity that helps student understand predator prey relationships, as well the the food cycle.

Discover anatomy and organ function with these family friendly once a month hands-on dissections. Parents and children will work together to dissect the plant or food-grade animal.
