Pellet Dissection Kits

Our Owl Pellet Dissection Kit makes one of our most popular educational activities available for anyone to take home! This kit contains everything a budding pellet detective needs to start their new journey of discovery. Dissecting owl pellets is a fun way to learn about prey and predator relationships, as it provides an interesting insight into an owl's eating habits.


Children won't be able to help digging in with eager anticipation as they reveal an exciting assortment of real rodent bones - that once belonged to the owl's last meal!


Each pack contains two pellets produced by the owls at Baytree Owl & Wildlife Centre, picked within 24 hours of casting and heat-sterilised for your safety and convenience.


The full kit includes:

  • Tweezers

  • Wooden probing implement

  • Pair of Safety Gloves (Latex Free)

  • Magnifying Lens

  • Instructions with Bone Identification Chart

  • PLUS Two Real Owl Pellets (Foil-wrapped)


Not suitable for children under 3 years due to small parts. Parental supervision advised.

Price: £4.99
