Owl Pellets

Today the grade 7s are doing an owl pellet dissection.  An owl pellet is basically owl vomit full of the fur and bones of it's prey.  It sounds gross but the pellets are serialized and are like a combination of little archaeology digs and a treasure hunt all wrapped up in to one!  We are studying them to understand their role in the food chain, niche, ecology and more.
