Mrs. Hansen's 6th Grade Class Dissected Owl Pellets

Rachel Hansen and Joriel Howcroft

Today Mrs. Hansen 6th Grade class dissected owl pellets. Owl pellets were donated by Patti Richards with Great Basin Wildlife Rescue.

Mrs. Howcroft brought owl pellets for us to dissect today. Most of us had no idea that owls eat their food whole and then regurgitate the bones and fur of whatever they ate. We used a bone guide to try and determine the meal the owl had eaten. It was fun and very interesting.
