Need help! Reptile digestion...

Post by Dolphine » Wed Oct 12, 2005 6:12 pm

Hey everyone!

I need some useful links about reptiles' digestive system, about its strucure, how it works, pictures if possible etc. We have to make essays about different areas considering reptiles and my group got the subject of reptiles' digestive system and excretory organs. We have tried to search on the net for information but have found nothing useful and are starting got somewhat frustrated. :( So, if you guys know any good links, please tell! I'd be most grateful! :D

Thanks for the links! The pictures in them were very useful for us.
We have to do these essays because in the course (Animal evolution, systematics and structure) the part were we would do the reptiles (meaning we would have to cut a snake open) the teachers can't get any actual animals for our practise. So they made us to do the essays about different areas considerng Reptilia. Some groups got the blood circulation system, some the reptile phylogenetics and so on. It has been quite difficult to find enough information but luckily we're pretty much done with it. :)
