Spokane students learn science hands on, dissect owl pellets
Spokane eighth-graders are studying the energy flow in an ecosystem. If you start at the top of the food chain, you can trace this energy flow by seeing what is being eaten by predators. When barn owls eat prey, they digest what can be used and everything else is vomited up in an owl “pellet.” By dissecting these pellets and identifying the skulls that have been eaten, you can construct a food web showing the different relationships in the ecosystem. The students found mice, vole, shrew and bird skulls in their pellets and had a lot of fun during the project. Pictured from left, Anna Kootz, Kaylynn Don Juan and Bryce Nichols.

PET OF THE WEEK: Betty
Betty is energetic and very playful. She likes to wrestle with other dogs, race around the yard and play tug-of-war with a rope.Betty’s foster family says she knows many commands including sit, come, wait, down and stay. She loves to chew on raw hides and has no food aggression.Betty plays well with the other dogs in the foster’s home. She loves car rides and is very friendly. Betty loves her special spot on the couch but spends more of her time sitting and looking out the window. She is housebroken, but does not like to use the doggy door. Betty is an excellent, loving, cuddly girl. She loves people, although she is a little timid with children. She would love to be a lap dog, but is a little large to be a lap dog. She is very affectionate. Betty is curious and is ready to give chase if the opportunity presents itself. She walks well on a leash. She would be an excellent companion to a single person, but would also fit with a family.If you’re interested in fostering or adopting Betty please contact route66Rescue@yahoo.com for a foster/adoption application.
