E digging through our pellet
B digging through her pellet.
C with his pellet.
D finding the bones.
If you can't tell by the pictures, we really had a great time seeing what our pellets contained. We had charts to identify the bones and what animals they came from.
Here are some of the bones that E and I found.
Here you can see a clear rodent jaw with the teeth next to it.
Here you can see a clear rodent hip bone.
A and B looking at some of the bones and identifying them.
B had all rodents bones.
D and E and I had all rodent bones as well. A and C had rodent and shrew bones. I was really impressed that all of our pellets had so many bones. One of our pellets had 5 different skulls. I ordered my owl pellets off Amazon from Mountain Home Biological and I would highly recommend them. If you are looking for a fun and exciting science activity, dissecting owl pellets will not disappoint.
