Ruminant stomach

A ruminant stomach is a multi-chambered stomach of animals classified as ruminants, located on the left side of the abdominal cavity (from the diaphragm to the gullet of the pelvic cavity), consisting mostly of four chambers: the rumen (rumen), the cap (reticulum), the lunula (omasum), which forms the so-called forestomach (proventriculus) and the digesta (abomasum), or stomach proper. 1)
