« ventre » vs. « estomac »?
“belly” vs. “stomach?”
is this true?
Some say a cow has 4 stomachs. Some say a cow has 1 stomach with 4 different compartments. It's all how you look at it.
Either way, it's not like a human stomach.
Rumen, reticulum, omasum and abomasum.
If this nerd's memory serves, it is an arrangement that allows cows to do something humans cannot: digest the cellulose in grass and break it down into molecules they can digest. Cool intestinal bacteria are involved!
What a luxury.
When do you use ventre or estomac? Are they interchangeable
ventre = abdomene, l'extérieur = belly, tummy, gut.
estomac = The internal organ, stomach.
Ventre as I understand it, is the outside "belly" (think beer gut), whilst "l'estomac" is an "internal" organ where digestion occurs.
(feel free to correct me if I'm wrong).
Thanks for your help
Appa a huit estomacs
Four stomachs... wow... That could really hold a lot of pizza ! ;-)
