The American Lobster has many mouths on the bottom of the lobster. The American Lobster has three stomachs that are used in the digestive system. They are the foregut, midgut, and hindgut. The first step in the lobsters digestive system is that it grips its food by using its many mouths. Then it goes through the muscular esophagus to the stomach. After food is consumed through the mouths and goes through the esophagus it enters the foregut, where teeth grind the food into smaller particles for easier digestion. After the foregut, the food enters the midgut where the particles are broken down more. The particles that are still to big to be digested then go to the hindgut. These big particles then go through the enlarged rectum. Finally, the waste is released through the anus which is at the tip of the tail.
