Figure 2: (a) oesophagus and stomach of white-bellied pangolin outlined by contrast media. Contrast appeared in the stomach immediately it was fed to the pangolins. This confirms the tongue extends from the abdomen (the contrast terminates where the pangolin tongue terminates within the abdomen, seen along the length of the air-filled trachea). The oesophagus is outlined by the contrast. It runs deep at the thoracic inlet and appears again at the level of the 8-10th rib. Contrast in widest part of stomach determined to be fundus. Stomach was observed consistently at level of 10th thoracic rib. (b)-Dorsoventral view of fusiform shaped stomach outlined by contrast media (c)-Dorsoventral view of small intestinal loops outlined by contrast media. (d)-The large intestines appear to consist of few loops and a predominantly uniformly sized rectum which was consistently full of feacal material.
