Word For The Day, Tuesday, October 7, 2008
In order that we might all raise the level of discourse and expand our language abilities, here is the daily post of "Word for the Day".
Feeding on excrement
My daughter’s new guinea pig is coprophagous.
“In God we trust.” The motto of our currency. This bond with our Creator is essential and indespensible . This is the God of Abraham, Moses and the house of David; Jesus Christ.
charming name ; )
It would be felicitous for our country were most liberals to become caphrophagus and perish in their filth.
As one who always seeks a "higher level" of discourse, I often refer to someone as having a "coprophagous smile".
You need to take that critter to a vet proto!
Not at all.
Most grass-eating mammals are quite large and have a long digestive tract; while guinea pigs have much longer colons than most rodents, they must also supplement their diet by coprophagy, the eating of their own feces. However, they do not consume all their feces indiscriminately, but produce special soft pellets, called cecotropes, which recycle B vitamins, fiber, and bacteria required for proper digestion. The cecotropes (or caecal pellets) are eaten directly from the anus, unless the guinea pig is pregnant or obese. They share this behaviour with rabbits.
Did I walk into a boy’s gym? Talking about rodents and colons and eating gross things....... ;^)
HAPPY 75th bday, CEEJ!!!! ; )

Snips and snails and puppy-dog tails.
