Owl Pellets

Mary has finished reading the entire Harry Potter series, and has started watching the movies. She wanted to do some Harry Potter related lessons, so today we dissected owl pellets, so we would find out what our Owl Post owls have been eating.

The pellet is a regurgitated wad of fur and bones:

Audrey didn't mind using her fingers to pull it apart, but Mary preferred to use the tools.

Audrey found lots of tiny bones, including top and bottom jaws with sharp little teeth.

Mary's owl ate something bigger. We found a section of tail in her pellet.
