We described the macroscopic anatomy of the intestines and their peritoneal folds of five adult pampas deer (Ozotoceros bezoarticus), a cervid species considered to ingest a high proportion of grass in its natural diet. The mean (±SD) body weight was 17 (±2) kg. The small intestine and the caecocolon measured 495 (±37) cm and 237 (±24) cm in length, respectively, with an average ratio (small intestine:caecocolon) of 1.9 (±0.1). The ascending colon had two and a half centripetal gyri, a central… Expand
Gross Anatomy of the Gastrointestinal Tract of a Red Brocket Deer (Mazama americana): A Case Study
TLDR
The red brocket deer was found to have the typical rumen forestomach, consisting of the rumen, reticulum, omasum and abomasum, and was classified as a concentrate selector ruminant. Expand
Vascularization of the small intestine in lesser anteaters, Tamandua tetradactyla (Xenarthra: Myrmecophagidae)
TLDR
The vascular pattern of the lesser anteater differs from those of other previously described vertebrates, but is similar to the pattern found in fetuses of domestic mammals during early intestinal development. Expand
Gross Anatomy of Pampas Deer (Ozotoceros bezoarticus, Linnaeus 1758) Mouth and Pharynx
TLDR
Pampas deer may be categorized as belonging to the intermediate type of feeding, taking highly nutritious sprouts beyond plant category, in addition to previous studies of anatomy of the digestive organs in this species. Expand
Arterial Vascularization of the Gastrointestinal Tract of the Pampas Deer (Ozotoceros bezoarticus, Linnaeus, 1758)
TLDR
The pampas deer had a basic pattern of arterial distribution similar to small domestic ruminants. Expand
Gross Anatomy of the Intestine in the Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis)
TLDR
When compared with domestic cattle, giraffe had a comparatively short small intestine and a comparatively long large intestine, with a resulting small ratio of small:large intestine. Expand
Gross Measurements of the Digestive Tract and Visceral Organs of Addax Antelope (Addax nasomaculatus) Following a Concentrate or Forage Feeding Regime
TLDR
The results emphasize the adaptability of ruminant digestive tract anatomy in adult animals even after a short period of time, but also suggest limits to this adaptability that reveals a species‐specific anatomy regardless of the diet actually consumed. Expand
Arterial Thoracic Vascularization in Some Deer Species: Pampas Deer (Ozotoceros bezoarticus), Brown Brocket Deer (Mazama gouazoubira) and Axis Deer (Axis axis)
TLDR
The arterial distributions of the aortic arches of three deer species (Axis axis, Ozotoceros bezoarticus and Mazama gouazoubira) were described and the absence of bicarotid trunk was more striking than previous reports. Expand
Anatomical Study of the Gastrointestinal Tract in Free‐living Axis Deer (Axis axis)
TLDR
The gastrointestinal system of axis deer reflected similar morphological characteristics of the both types of ruminants: browser and grazer, and it is considered as an intermediate feeder. Expand
Pelvic Peritoneum in Male Armadillo and Anteater (Xenarthra, Mammalia): A Comparative Survey
The literature supports the hypothesis that the pelvic excavation is the bottom of the abdominal cavity, which is covered by the peritoneal serous membrane in order to promote visceral dynamics. WeExpand

A comparative study of the intestinal anatomy of deer.
TLDR
The mean relative length of the large intestine was about 52% of the small intestine in the reindeer and 55-57% in the other species, which indicates that significant differences in gut proportions do not exist in the deer species studied. Expand
Observations on the Macroscopic Digestive Anatomy of the Himalayan Tahr (Hemitragus jemlahicus)
TLDR
The length of the large intestine was a more constant parameter over a range of body weights than that of the small intestine and the weight of the parotid glands scaled to metabolic body weight. Expand
Dimensions of the intestine, diet and faecal water loss in some African antelope
TLDR
Measurements of the intestine of 16 species of antelope were allometrically analysed and species producing dry dung had larger lengths and areas of the large intestine but a smaller circumference of the proximal and spiral colon and also showed greater drying of digesta per unit area than those producing wetter dung.

MORPHOMETRIC DIFFERENTIATION OF ENDANGERED PAMPAS DEER (OZOTOCEROS BEZOARTICUS), WITH DESCRIPTION OF NEW SUBSPECIES FROM URUGUAY
TLDR
It is found that pampas deer exhibit strong sexual dimorphism, which supports the recognition of 2 separate subspecies in the Uruguayan northwestern grassland (Salto Department) and the Uruguayuayan east grass land (Rocha Department). Expand
The food habits of Pampas deer Ozotoceros bezoarticus celer in relation to its conservation in a relict natural grassland in Argentina
TLDR
The annual diet of a remnant population of the endangered Argentinian pampas deer Ozotoceros bezoarticus celer was determined by microhistological analysis of droppings, suggesting competition for the trophic resource would intensify in dry years, and that food supply may be the limiting factor for pampsas deer. Expand
Sexual Variations in Food Quality and Gastrointestinal Features of Sika Deer (Cervus nippon) in Japan During Winter: Implications for Feeding Strategy
TLDR
To meet greater nutritional demands of high metabolic rate and gestation, pregnant females seemed to maintain a greater volume of digesta in guts and had more stomach tissues than expected by the sexual dimorphism-body size hypothesis to compensate for poorer forage quality. Expand
Conservation genetics of the endangered Pampas deer (Ozotoceros bezoarticus)
TLDR
The molecular genetic results provide a mandate for habitat restoration and reintroduction of Pampas deer so that levels of genetic variation can be preserved and historic patterns of abundance can be reconstructed, and the source of individuals for reintroduction generally should be from populations geographically closest to those now in danger of extinction. Expand
Differences in the range of faecal dry matter content between feeding types of captive wild ruminants
TLDR
While no difference was observed in the average faecal dry matter content between the feeding types, the range of dry matter contents increased continually from FR, BR, IM to GR, ie both the driest and the wettest faeces of this study were produced by grazing ruminants. Expand
