Gift - Owl Pellet Kit
The owl pellet kit is a perennial favorite and a perfect stocking stuffer It includes one sterilized owl pellet, two dissecting sticks and a bone chart for identifying the bones inside the pellet. Much like any gift, part of the fun lies in the anticipation of 'unwrapping' in this case the furry exterior that encases the pellet. An owl pellet is formed of the indigestible bits of an owl's meal (fur and bones), which the owl spits out on to the ground beneath its nest. Each pellet is sterilized prior to shipment. Caution - choking hazard: Owl pellet contents include small parts and adult supervision is recommended.
