Question

Question 50
Why is small intestine in herbivores longer than in carnivores?


Solution

Digestion of cellulose takes a longer time. Hence, herbivores eating grass need a longer small intestine to allow complete digestion of cellulose. Carnivorous animals cannot digest cellulose, hence they have a shorter intestine.
