How Do Crocodiles Digest Their Food?

Answer

Crocodiles, like other reptiles, do not chew their food fully. They are carnivorous and have short guts designed to disintegrate meat as well as very acidic stomach conditions. The food is then slowly digested in the stomach where the acidic conditions are able to digest even the bones. This also means longer periods of time in between meals compared to human beings. It is believed that stones found in adult crocodile stomachs also aid in the digestion process.
