Owl Pellet Kits
+ Examining owl pellets is a memorable and fascinating way to learn about microscopy and the eating habits of raptors - birds of prey such as owls, hawks and eagles.
Omano microscopes are built to the same quality standards as the Zeiss or Leica you’re familiar with, but there’s no premium price attached to the name. But we don’t just tell you they’re good. We make sure they’re good with a Lifetime Warranty and 30-day Satisfaction Guarantee.

Owl pellets are the indigestible parts of an owl's meal that the owl regurgitates. They include fur, feathers and bones since the owl swallows its meal whole, and owl pellet dissection is a popular high school science activity. The pellets included in our owl pellet kits are expelled after an owl’s meal, offering students the opportunity to break these pellets apart with tools and examine the interior safely -- our owl pellet kits are heat sterilized at 280°F to kill any bacteria.
Use the two included dissection sticks to unravel what the owl ate and identify the bones with the included bone identification chart. Also includes instructions on how to explore the owl pellet and a dichotomous instruction sheet to help identify the type of animal to which the bones belong.
Kit Contents: 1 Owl Pellet, 2 dissection sticks, 1 Bone Chart, 1 Instruction Sheet.
Caution: Small parts - Choking hazard. Not to be used by children under 5 years of age.
