Predator is the individual who hunts and devours another, called prey, belonging to a different species. Predators are generally larger and less numerous than their prey, being exemplified by carnivorous animals. Both predatory and prey populations generally do not go extinct or overpopulate, remaining in equilibrium in the ecosystem.
In the small intestine, most digestion of nutrients occurs as well as their absorption, that is, the assimilation of nutrients. In the duodenum, secretions from the liver and pancreas are released. In this first portion of the small intestine, chemical digestion is performed mainly - with the joint action of bile, pancreatic juice and enteric or intestinal juice acting on the chymus.
