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.

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!

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).
