Getting ready to disect the Owl Pellet

I went with Jordan and his class on a field trip to the Minnitrista Center in Muncie. I had never been there. It was very interesting. They studied birds of prey. Lots on neat information and activities. I didn't get as many pictures as I wanted, I was having camera issues.

This is Jordan and his friend getting ready to dig into the owl pellet. In case you wonder, what is an owl pellet? An owl eats its prey whole, they body is able to digest everything except the fur and bones, that form a ball and they spit it out. It looks like a big fur ball. Posted by Picasa
