How Many Stomachs Does a Camel Have?


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.
