Build a Digestive System
The digestive systems of humans and bison are adapted to their diet. Can you reassemble in the proper order the different components of their systems? To each its own digestive system! Humans are omnivores. We have a one-chambered stomach that allows us to extract a high level of nutrients from a wide variety of foods. Bison are herbivores and ruminants. Their four-chambered stomach (helped by cellulose-digesting bacteria) allows them to efficiently extract the energy from the vegetable matter that is their diet.
