Teeth de résistance!

The pièce de résistance Check out the tiny molars!!!!
(Anne says: look a bit left of center in the photo above.)
The skull was about 1 inch in length and the molars only a couple mm in size. Never could see a bottom jaw, my guess is that it was pulverized in the owl's gullet.

Comin' straight on for you! Look closely at this one (above) and the previous skull image... lots of the soft nose tissue is still intact!

Photo of the pellet artist! Here she or he is, the same morning the pellet was discovered, happily resting after a long night of owl activities...
Anne says: This is the kind of hacking we like. Thanks to Lyn and company!
