5. Why do herbivores need a lot of bacteria within the caecum?

  • The herbivore cannot digest the lignin in plant cell walls, so the bacteria contain ligase to digest it
  • The bacteria break down proteins
  • Because herbivores cannot digest cellulose on their own, they need cellulase to digest it
  • The bateria produce a lot of acid, providing the optimum conditions for enzymes
