Animal digestive systems

Post by southsrock123 » Wed Jul 29, 2009 11:22 am

Hi
i was just wondering if anyone could hekp me with a few questions:
- What is the stomach size and capacity of the koala, tiger and honey possum?
- What is the relative size of the small intestine for the koala, tiger and honey possum?
- Is hindgut present in the koala, tiger and honey possum? If so what is its function?
It would be much appreciated if anyone had the answers to those questions.
Thanks heaps

These are questions you can answer with some searches - you might need a species or family name for the honey possum, though.

I think this is what was meant in the sticky when it said research first? Then again maybe you did a search and yielded no results?
