I love this kind of response. It sums up my feelings about so many things.
I did this in middle school, this was such a cool lab to see what was inside!
I remember doing this is fourth or fifth grade too, forgot about it until seeing owl pellets and remembered playing with owl poop in school.
I recommend using school glue and black construction paper for display.
Ahhh I was wondering how I was going to do it
I was home sick on the day we were supposed to do owl pellets in middle school and I'm still sore about it.
Thought I was the only one!!!! Maybe missing that day in school fueled a lifelong interest for biology out of spite... lmao
getting war flashbacks from 8th grade
My flash backs involve walking 10 miles in the snow to get to school... Or at least having to hear elders tell me that story
I did one once and got a whole vole skeleton that I glued to note cards to look put back together. It was one of my prize possessions until my mom threw it away when they helped me move last time.
Dig through owl poo so I can reassemble little skeletons?
Sign me up!
Not poop, regurgitation.
Jesus. I forgot about these. We “dissected” one in my science class in 3rd grade. No one ever said what it was lol
Saw your post and immediately headed to this shop to get some!!! I cannot WAIT
Yessss it’s so much fun!
Yes! I remember this from my school days. Can I ask for the seller name?
I live in an area with a lot of owls and when I was little, my mom used to complain about cleaning up the “owl poop.” Then I got older and learned what they are and got SO excited! Endless learning and experiments! Add in the fact that my dad works on ships and would regularly bring home salmon for me to gut or crabs for me to help boil, and my inner biologist was in heaven. My parents were definitely like “our sweet little girl is a psychopath.”
In high school I was the only one who would dissect the fetal pig without getting upset and would walk around with the teacher helping other people do theirs. As an adult, I’ve always been in charge of pest control of all kinds despite being OBSESSED with animals. I’ve always had pets and have actually gotten good at handling most first aid (including draining abscesses) and our local vet keeps encouraging me to at least become a vet tech. (No way...I’d be a puddle of tears at all times!)
And yet I get squeamish handling raw meat so I mostly cook vegetarian. 🤷♀️
Omg I can still smell this experiment from grade 4!
Well, shit. Maybe I should start selling this stuff. I see owl vomit full of little bones constantly when I go hiking.
Very interesting that so many people here dissected them as children. This makes me remember that despite in my country it was not a standard thing to dissect the pellets, we had owls living in our barn at middle school times, so my teacher learned an made me collect and bring the pellets. Carefully phrased, it didn't boost my popularity, but I had a blast
Wow. My dad always said “you can sell shit-on-a-stick if someone is willing to buy it”. Seems he was correct. Lol.
It comes with a diagram!!!
That is awesome.
My favorite day in 8th grade bio!!!
Do they still smell as bad as I remember from class?
I was browsing random subreddits, overlooked the subreddits name and wondered what kind of wierd WICCA stuff is going on here 😅
How many owls do you have to have on tap , that you have so many castings about that you can bag them up and advertise them?
**Excited necromancer noises!**
This seems cool!
Tiny mouse bones, cute.
When I was a kid I lived on a ranch, and from 4-10 I would do just this on the porch for fun. I would try to put the bodies back together the older I got. I started so young from the guidance of my older sister at the time thinking it was great. I thought I was the strange one, but you paid for this. 🤣
Did it come with a warning to disinfect your table afterwards? I hope the chems don't damage your lovely table's finish!
The page has safety info, no worries
I did this in 6th grade. It was super cool! I had 2 skulls in mine I believe, although I don’t remember what animals they were from
My teacher let us dissect these things last quarter and it had the exact same paper
It’s a great home school project, it can lead to the study of ecology, digestion, classification.
What would be the best way of storing owl pellets?
Wrap in aluminium foil and store in a box in a freezer, or dehydrate it a bit first?
This is like the pimple popping obsession on the internet.
Are those pellets spraypainted gold? This is so fucked up but also so awesome! xD
They’re wrapped up in tin foil!
Wtf do u do with it ?
My cousin came to visit us in Canada from England - we went on a hike in the woods and he came across a few of these owl pellets and said we can soak them in water and watch them fall apart into pieces.. he picked them up with his bare hands and I was like dude wtf.. soaked them and they kinda fell apart, we weren’t really able to detect individual pieces of bones , was just a mish mash of hair and broken up bones
They have any pigs?
Ummmmmm, shouldn’t this be Nope or Ewwwwww?
Ok I like biology and all but the excitement is a little weird. Also please update with pics.
Yikes. I misread "excitement" as "excrement".
You literally bought artisanal shit, goddamn son, that’s messed up as hell.
It’s regurgitated bones and fur that can’t be digested, not feces. Neat to see what surprises are inside though!
You guys dissected owl crap???
Lol We dissected frogs and cats.
It’s actually more like a hairball type ball that has been regurgitated!
