Owl pellets are tight pellets that the owl has regurgitated. They include the parts of animals that the owl is unable to digest including small bones, feathers, and fur. The owl pellets are sterilized so they can be touched, but we have included gloves in the kit. If your children choose to touch the materials in their exploration, they should wash their hands afterward.
