Owl-fully Fun

Dissecting owl pellets at co-op?

Yes, please!

Well, maybe not with quite so much enthusiasm…

The pellets were dark in color and resembled droppings more than “coughings.”  Though after a while, the pellets did smell like poop.  (But in a room full of kids right after lunchtime, that smell could very well have been due to human flatulence.)

Smell aside, it was very cool to find bones, claws and teeth.

Yum.  Kinda makes you glad you’re not an owl, doesn’t it?

Too bad his 15 minutes of fame came after death.
