Did you know owls swallow their prey whole?
Owls cannot digest the prey’s fur and bones, so then an owl pellet is created! Pellets are cast out of an owl’s mouth around 20 hours after they swallow their prey. The pellets found in this package are made at the Wildlife in Need Center by our resident owls (Dakota and Sova) as well as our owl patients. A pellet may even contain an entire skeleton! These pellets can be used for a fun activity to discover what types of animals owls eat, and can also supplement science classes. Pellet sizes will vary!
Suitable for ages 6 & up, children under the age of 15 must be accompanied by an adult. This program is limited to 24 participants. Program length: 1 hour, dissection of two pellets with diagram hand-outs.
