ruminant

Ruminant animals digest plant-based food in four stomach compartments and regurgitate semi-digested food (cud) and chew it again to further break down the digestion. Ruminants include cattle, goats, sheep, deer, llamas and others.  These animals can digest some plant material that is harder for humans and other monogastric animals to digest properly.
