Dissecting Owl Pellets

Year 2 found out that owls regurgitate bone, fur and feather from the animals they eat. These are the parts of the animal that cannot be digested. 

We used tweezers and lolly sticks to dissect the owl pellets. We then matched the bones we found on a chart which showed the pictures of different bones from different animals. 

We found a skull and a bone from the leg of a rat!
