Cherry- Dissecting Owl Pellets- 16.7.21

This morning Cherry dissected owl pellets. We learnt where the pellets came from. They are regurgitated by an owl between meals.

First, we had to soak the pellet in warm water for 10 minutes to soften them.

Then, we pulled the pellet apart to see what the owl had eaten. Some of us were fascinated and some of us were less than pleased by what we found. We found all sorts of bones including feet and skulls. We used a bone identification chart to identify the animal skeletons.

Can you remember which bones you found?
