Owl Pellet

Satisfactory Essays
The most abundant substance found in the owl pellet was the 5 grams of fur. The total mass of the owl pellet was 8.5 grams. The owl pellet was dissected and the bones and fur was separated. The bones measured 3.5 grams of bones. This is not surprising to see the 5.0 grams of fur and 3.5 grams of bones in the pellet, because the owl cannot digest these substances. It could be assumed the mice found in this owl pellet could have been consumed in the winter months to explain the larger percentage of fur.
