How Many Stomachs Does a Camel Have?

Answer

The camel does not have multiple stomachs, it actually only has one, and that single stomach has three different chambers that have different jobs. Those three stomach sections are how the camel stores partially chewed food, and also how it can digest what it has previously eaten (cud). Animals with sectioned stomachs are also known as ruminants.

Camel
Kingdom: Animalia Phylum: Chordata Class: Mammalia Order: Artiodactyla Family: Camelidae Genus: Camelus
Camels are the herbivorous humped mammals of genus Camelus. There are only 2 species of camels, the dromedary camel is native to North Africa and the Middle East, and the Bactrian camel is native to eastern Asia.
Other matches:
Camels are not true ruminants, even though they ruminate (chew repeatedly), because a camel has three stomachs instead of four. The stomach compartment that is missing from the camel but is found in true ruminants like cows, is the third stomach which is also called the omasum.
