Owl Pellet Dissection Kit

When owls hunt prey, they tend to swallow their meal hole. They digest the edible parts, and then regurgitate the rest - including bones, fur, and feathers - as a pellet.

These fascinating pellets give you the opportunity to become a nature detective. By dissecting an owl pellet, you can gather clues to help you figure out the owl’s most recent meal.

 
Owl Eye Viewer Kit from the Wonderkin Owl Box

Owl Eye Viewer

Humans and most animals have eyes that are round like balls. That means we can look up, down, left, and right without having to move our head at all. Owls, on the other hand, have eyes shaped like tubes. As a result, they can't move their eyes, and have to move their entire head instead. 

By assembling this “Owl Eye Viewer” you can experience first hand what an owl’s field of vision would feel like.

 
Food Chain Stacker featured in the Wonderkin Owl Box

Food Chain Stacker

All living things depend on each other to survive. A food chain shows who eats what (or whom!) in a particular ecosystem. 

Color and assemble this simple food chain stacker for a hands-on, visual representation of a food chain.
