Once owls catch their prey, they return to their roost and eat the catch of the day. If it is a small meal, such as a mouse, vole, or snake, they will eat the animal whole. Owls are not designed to digest bones and fur, so their stomachs take these indigestible materials and pack them into a pill shape. The owl then regurgitates the newly compacted package out onto the ground below its roost. This lab takes the kids through the process of dissecting an owl pellet to determine what the owl had for dinner.
