MacDonald, D. Zebra digestive system. The New Encyclopedia of Mammals. Oxford University Press, 2001. Diagram This diagram shows where the food travels in a zebra's body. The bot the caecum, or cecum, and colon are fermentation sites, which meansthat is where tough plants are broken down with a particular bacteria and release nutrients. The arrows show where these nutrients are absorbed. In this presentation, I will inform you about a zebra's diet and how it obtains as well as eats its food. I will also include its digestive system and how food travels through its body. How do they convert food into energy? Mitochondria in the zebra's cells convert food into useable energy. When food is digested and oxygen is taken in, the smallest molecules and nutrients cross into the bloodstream. These molecules and nutrients include things such as glucose (a sugar molecule). When the mitochondria convert glucose into adenosine triphosphate, ATP (which temporarily stores energy), they use oxygen and give off carbon dioxide and water. The ATP is like a battery, and when it is charged, it releases the energy into the body.
