How is ruminant's stomach different from human stomach?

Dear student,                                                                                                                                                                      
Please find below the solution to the asked query    

Ruminants have three extra chambers in their stomach before the true stomach.

Rumen: The plant material is processed here first.

Reticulum: Cud is formed by chewing and rechewing

Omasum: Further processing of cud

Abomasum (true stomach): Last chamber where actual digestion takes place by enzymes and bacteria.

Humans have only one stomach which is divided into four parts- 

Cardia: It is the first part of the stomach where oesophagus empties its content into the stomach. Gastric juices are manufactured in cardia.
Fundus: It is the storehouse of undigested food and gases released from chemical digestion.
Corpus: It is the largest part where partial digestion occurs.
Pyrolus: It connects stomach to duodenum (first part of small intestine).
