What is inside a frog's stomach?
Click to see full answer.
Keeping this in consideration, why is the inside of the frog's stomach folded?
It is located along the side of the inner body. Since the body of the frog is small, by folding the stomach can increase the surface area of the stomach in order to help the frog digest. This is because the intestine helps break down food but because a part is missing it won't provide complete breakdown of food.
Likewise, what is the function of a frog's stomach? Frog Functions
|esophagus||tube from mouth to stomach|
|stomach||food storage organ, the first major site of chemical digestion|
|rugae||folds, helpin churning the food and mixing it with the stomach's gastric juices|
|pyloric sphincter valve||regulates the exit of partially digested food from the stomach|
Also Know, what does the internal lining of the stomach look like in a frog?
The lining of the stomach has folds of tissue that form ridges along the interior. A cross section looks like a star and has radial symmetry. Folds increase the surface are of the stomach for mechanical (mixing) digestion and absorption of nutrients.
Why do frogs have 3 liver lobes?
Just below the heart, the three-lobed liver is the largest organ in the frog's body. Gall Bladder. Lift up the lobes of the liver to find the small greenish-brown sac of the gall bladder nestled between them. This stores bile produced by the liver.
