Owl Pellet Dissection
Today in Alley Pond Pioneers we learned all about owls! Did you know owls have special feathers that help them fly silently through the night sky? They're owl-fly fascinating! Owls are predators and that means they hunt for things like mice, rats, and shrews. The fur and bones of their prey cannot be digested so owls have a strategy for that! They eject all the undigestible parts in a neat little pellet. We got to dissect REAL owl pellets today! Slowly pulling them apart revealed several rodent bones and skulls in each pellet! Check out this video of us during the dissection!
