ABSTRACT
Ruminant, a grazing animal that chews a cud and has split hooves. Ruminants include domestic cattle, bison, buffaloes, camels and llamas, giraffes, deer, pronghorns, antelopes, sheep, and goats. These animals, except camels and llamas, have no upper front teeth; in place of teeth there is hardened gum, against which the lower front teeth bite. Ruminants hastily bite off and swallow their food (chiefly grasses, herbs, and twigs). They then lie down or stand at rest and chew the cuds.
