ABSTRACT
The article describes the digestive system of a deer. It notes that most of the digestion occurs in the stomach, where the microorganisms break down the fibers, cellulose and other basic plant components. The acids absorbed through the papillae and the walls of the rumen provide the energy needed by the deer. The food re-swallowed by the animal passes to the reticulum, which holds the food in a clump. The abomasum is said to be the last compartment of the food.
