Did you know an owl pellet can tell a story? An owl’s diet, reflected in the bones inside a pellet, can give you a glimpse into the ecosystem in which it lives.
Owl pellets are formed when owls swallow their prey whole, then eject a pellet from their mouths 12 to 24 hours later. The pellet contains the indigestible bones and fur of the prey.
Owl pellets make a wonderful learning tool that can be used to introduce students to comparative skeletal anatomy, concepts of natural history, and ecology and predator/prey relationships. A great in-class activity before or after your visit to the Raptor Center!
Funds raised through the sale of owl pellets help support the care and feeding of our raptors and the important work we do in our clinic.
