They digest all the fleshy parts of the prey but are unable to digest the hair, fur and bones. After each night’s feeding the owl regurgitates the indigestible body parts of the prey in the form of a pellet. By examining the remains within a pellet, you can determine the diet of owls. Use the identification chart below to identify the remains of a rodent that may be found within an owl pellet. Look at the shape and size of the skull, teeth, limbs, pelvis and other body parts to identify the prey animal. Notice the long incisor teeth, and the molars at the center of the jaw. You can identify particular species of rodents by studying the details and pattern of their teeth. Rodent Skeleton Identification www.newpathlearning.com © Copyright NewPath Learning.
