Earlier in the week, we dissected owl pellets.
Only Anna and Galina remember doing something similar when they were younger, so it was a new thing.
After separating the fur and feathers from the bones, the kids identified the different bones and then figured out which animal their owl had eaten.
Most of the owl pellets contained mouse bones. One of the girls' pellets had bird bones.
Annalyn and Anna want to dissect another pellet with Adam over the weekend.
"Have fun!" says William who absolutely could not stand the grossness of this project.
Personally, I wiped down and sanitized the counter four times.
I don't think we will be dissecting anything else.
Tomorrow someone is turning 14! We are celebrating at HomeTown Buffet her favorite restaurant! Hey... at least I don't have to cook!
