Digestion


Since there are so many different ways of feeding in the phylum Arthropoda, there are also many various digestive systems. Therefore, we will look at only one, the digestive tract of the grasshopper. The order that food passes through the grasshopper includes: the mouth, the esophagus, which conveys food from the pharynx to the crop, a stomach of sorts. Next to the true stomach, then the intestine, which leads to the rectum, then to the anus. Other arthropods have different digestive systems, according to their method of feeding, and body structure.
