We were sitting around the dinner table when my son let his daddy know that he played with owl puke during “school”. I told him he actually dissected owl pellets but he promptly responded with, “No, mommy it was owl puke.”
We both had a lot of fun with our Classical Conversations group dissecting our owl puke/pellet. I told my son we were kind of like the archaeologists in his dinosaur books looking for bones. We found 3 skulls, jaws, femurs and all sorts of other bones. It was really amazing. Our wonderful tutor had extra puke/pellets for us to take home so yes, we will be doing another dissection and who knows, we may even sing the owl pellet SONG.
