The length and diameter of stomach and the length, diameter and number of pyloric caeca were measured. Anatomical and histological study showed the stomach is U-shaped and gizzard like; it is divisible into anterior cardiac and posterior pyloric portions while pyloric caeca is a finger like straight organs. In transverse section, the wall of the stomach and pyloric caeca is deeply folded with four-layered general structure.
