Studies on digestion and metabolism in camelids have, over the past 15 years, benefited from technical and methodological progress made on ruminants. Today, reliable scientific information allows to compare the digestive and metabolic aptitudes of these two types of animals. The anatomy of the forestomach and the feeding behaviour of the camelids and ruminants are very different. Such differences have consequences on the digestion of food. Even though the microbial population is qualitatively the same, the cellulolytic activity of the bacteria is much more important in the camelid forestomach and the retention time of solid particles in the forestomach is much l...
