What are owl pellets?
Kids love science-especially when it's hands-on-and kids love yucky stuff. What is an owl pellet? It's the football-shaped object regurgitated twice a day by owls, which contains the skeleton of at least one owl meal, be it a mouse, vole, shrew, or small bird. Used in elementary schools to teach the food web--but virtually unavailable at retail--a professionally collected, heat-sterilized owl pellet is now married to a lively, two-color illustrated book filled with facts and related activities about these most amazing birds. And what a story the Owl Puke Book tells--of the food chain, animal anatomy, life in the forest; of a bird that could read the bottom line of an eye chart from one mile away; and of a fierce hunter that swallows its prey headfirst and digests everything but the bones, which it spits back up in a pellet. As for the story the pellet tells, kids need only a toothpick to find out.

Sharing is caring - thank you for spreading the word! Owls are fascinating creatures. Many owls feed on furry animals such as rats, moles, squirrels, and rabbits, but their diet can also include insects, worms, fish, frogs, and lizards. Owls generally swallow their prey whole. However, they are not able to digest certain parts of their prey, including bones, teeth, claws, and fur.
Warning: you are about to read and see graphic pictures! If indigestible fur and bones in the form of owl pellets is too much for your morning coffee, stop reading now! Nothing thrills a parent or teacher more, than hearing your kids get really excited about a project. We recently invited a bunch of friends over to learn about owls, and dissect owl pellets, which my kids said was both gross and cool at the same time. The buzz in the room, that grew exponentially louder the deeper we got, turned into shrieks of excitement as kids made more discoveries. Thank you for your support!
