Saturday October 7th at 2pm at Wolf Gap, join UT Southern Professor of Biology Jamie Rogers for a hands-on an owl pellet dissection! There will be a limited number of owl pellets available at no cost to attendees.

Since the owl's body can't digest fur, bones, or teeth, these pieces are later coughed up as small oval objects known as owl pellets, just like cats cough up hairballs! Skulls, bones, and furs found in an owl pellet can provide good hints to help identify what an owl has eaten.
