  • My students could not get enough of searching through the pellet for new and interesting kinds of bones. They would not throw anything away until they had found every last bone and categorized it. What a great way to learn about bones and birds!
    Great for a Group!!

  • We used these for our co-op with about 25 kids of various ages. They loved it!! It was a great way to begin dissecting. Each child could work at his/her level. The kids all loved matching their finds to the bone guide.

      Owl pellet, large, with instructions

      You get a large owl pellet that is 1-1/2" or larger with dissecting instructions and a simple bone identification sheet. Each large owl pellet is foil wrapped and dry heat sterilized.

      Dissecting an owl pellet is a good way to learn about the eating habits of birds of prey. 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.
