Dissecting an Owl Pellet

The last two weeks we have been studying birds.  Last week we studied the bird's digestive system and dissected an owl pellet.  You can see how enthused Lauren was. Ha ha!  She did stick with it for about a good 2 hours.  Of the three we dissected her seemed to be the most difficult.

Hannah had the best pellet.  We were able to dissect it without breaking the skull apart.  Based on answering the questions that came along with the kit we believed it was a rat's skull.
