Owl Pellet

Today we decided to take apart an owl pellet that my grandad found. Owl pellets are regurgitated and contain all the animals’ parts that they can’t digest. They normally contain bone, teeth, hair and feathers of various animals eaten by the owls.

First I soaked it in water, Then I put a few drops of disinfectant in. Then I carefully pulled it apart.

We found loads of feathers and a few bones. It was quite disappointing because I thought we would at least get a skull. :-( It was more interesting then I thought it would be.

Here are a few of the bones that we found.

We are hoping to find another pellet soon which might have more it in. :)

  1. That is some great investigating Abbie. What do you think those small bones belong to?

  2. A small bird I would say 'cos' there was mainly feathers, no fur.
