What traits do animals need to help them survive?
A look into predator and prey, what might we find in an owl pellet?
During our owl pellet dissection, we discussed owl anatomy and the unique digestive system owls have. We learned that because owls don’t have teeth they rely on their ventriculus, or gizzard to filter out bones, fur, and feathers that their body cannot digest. Instead, they regurgitate the leftovers which is called an owl pellet. In this discovery students made predictions on what they might find in the pellet. Proceeding the dissection students sorted bones they found into piles and made conclusions on what their owl ate. K-2 even joined in on the fun and dissected one as a class.
