So here are the pics... I was so excited that I took over 40 pictures!
|The owl pellet as it was received. By the way, I know I paid a about two dollars per pellet but can't seem to find where I purchased it! Sorry.|
|Everyone dug right in -- ED was just as engaged and excited as DD and LD!|
|We looked through our mammal book and concluded these were mouse skulls.|
|The kids were so engaged and it went on so long, they asked me to start reading more about owls.|
|If you get the chance, I highly recommend doing this. What awesome, hands-on science!|
They have a free bone sorting chart here.
They state at their site: "Owl pellets have been carefully sterilized to ensure safety."
