  • Herbivorous, cud-chewing mammals such as cows or sheep, characterized by a stomach that consists of four compartments: the rumen, reticulum, omasum, and abomasum.

Glossary of "Environmental Science: Earth as a Living Planet (2nd ed.)" by Botkin & Keller (1998)

  • ruminants: Animals having a four-chambered stomach within which bacteria convert the woody tissue of plants to proteins and fats that, in turn, are digested by the animal. Cows, camels, and giraffes are ruminants; horses, pigs, and elephants are not.
