ABSTRACT
Intestine, or Bowel, in most animals, the tubular portion of the digestive system between the stomach and anus. In some lower animals, the intestine consists of a nearly straight tube. Humans, like most other higher animals, have a small and a large intestine, held in place in the abdominal cavity by membranes called mesenteries.
