Expert Answer:

Grass eating animals have a four chambered digestive system. These animals feed mostly on grass which contains cellulose in large quantities. Cellulose is a complex structure which is broken down into simpler particles only inside a ruminant stomach. The human body does not consume grass and therefore, the food does not contain cellulose. Our digestive system is such that it can digest proteins, carbohydrates and fats. If we will apply a digestive system of a grass eating animal in a human body, it might be difficult to survive since the complex food materials will not be broken down into simpler substances in the absence of the human digestive system.
