Owl Pellets Dissection Kit: Not on my Holiday Wish List This Year


Well here’s one item that’s not on my holiday wish list: the Owl Pellets Dissection Kit. This kit is made of of a pair of dissecting forceps, a magnifier and a chart to identify all the half digested bones and parts that the owl has thrown up. Owl pellets (and bird pellets in general) are actually undigested parts of a bird’s food that some bird species occasionally regurgitate which can include the exoskeletons of insects, indigestible plant matter, bones, fur, feathers, bills, claws, and teeth. DO NOT WANT.
