Owl Pellet Study Kits

Owls are adapted to catch and kill small prey quietly and accurately. Because owls have weak stomach muscles and stomach acids, they regurgitate undigested materials as fur balls. These fur balls, called owl pellets, often contain the skulls, bones, teeth, and claws of mammals; beaks and claws of birds; exoskeletons of insects; insect larvae; vegetable fibers; and owl feathers. Sometimes hard parts of reptiles, amphibians, or fish are found.

These owl pellets can be effectively used to study the food web of a particular eco-region. All owl pellets in a kit are collected from a single region, sterilized, and individually wrapped.

Kits come complete for 30 students working as partners.
