You had me at "reconstructing a skeleton"

Oct 17 2011 Published by under Uncategorized

What in the name of FSM and all that is holy am I talking about, you ask? I'm talking about owl pellets, people.  Kids dissecting owl pellets. Kids that you can help dissect an owl pellet, by donating to their project through my Epicsauce Donors Choose page.

Apparently--and I didn't even know this--when you dissect an owl pellet, you can pull out the bones of the little animals that the owl has eaten, and reconstruct them to get a sense of the owl's diet. Isn't that cool? As a bit of an anatomy nerd, I think that is really, really cool, and I really, really want these kids to get to do it themselves. The project is so close to being funded, and YOU could be the one to make it happen!  Even just $5 or $10 will help, AND DON'T FORGET, it will make you eligible to have a cocktail invented and named after you by yours truly!!!

And finally, here's a bouncy tune to get you in the giving mood.
