Proventriculus

Proventriculus

The proventriculus is the name of a particular region of a bird’s stomach, the first of two stomach chambers. It’s where a penguin, typically having swallowed its food whole, stores the food to be brought back for its chicks.

You should remember that the next time you take an adventure flight with penguins.
