I've been thinking, why is horse shit not a long cylinder but a series of spheres?

They're not. Only captive orangs get that fat, mostly because they are crammed together on very small living spaces, even though they are supposed to roam solitarily.

Pic is a majestic orang male. He's sadly not wild, but obviously still has more space to move about in. Also, bear in consideration that this beast is fuking huge.

I want to know why goat shit is tiny balls and why cow shit is a hot wet shower when they're both ruminants.

These are the questions that plague us.

>>2005912
This. They're super overfed in captivity.

>>2005923
I always wondered why cow shit was so liquidy too. As a side note, I remember reading ages ago that Hippos digested cellulose better than cattle, but I could never find a source to back it up.

Vet student here

Horse shit is in balls because their large intestine has pouch-like divisions called haustra that help naturally separate the shit into balls during peristalsis.

So basically, every time they shit it's like a bunch of anal beads coming out their ass.

Must be nice.

What sort of cows have you guys been hanging around? Except right after they've been wormed, all the shit I've seen tends to have the loose shape of a large tin can. Like the shape of that cheap cranberry jelly.
>>
>>2006997
interesting. why? what is the evolutionary advantage of this?
>>
>>2007385
That needs a smug hand.
>>
>>2007466
Not that anon, but I'm guessing it lessens the risk of the shit running down the horse's leg and getting stuck in it's tail, instead it comes out in a nice compact ball.

It increases surface area, allowing fermenting bacteria to work most efficiently.
