  1. third stomach

    A third stomach, in the context of biology and zoology, usually refers to omasum, the third compartment in the stomach of a ruminant animal. Ruminant animals, including cows, sheep, and deer, have a stomach divided into four parts – the rumen, reticulum, omasum, and abomasum. The omasum serves to absorb water, minerals, and nutrients from the food before it passes to the fourth stomach. The term "third stomach" might be used in discussing comparative anatomy or the digestive processes of these animals.
