Asked by sangyaswarupa | 16th Mar, 2021, 10:08: AM
The alimentary canal is the long tube of organs — including the esophagus, stomach, and intestines — that runs from the mouth to the anus.
The oesophagus is a fibromuscular tube, approximately 25cm in length that transports food from the pharynx to the stomach.
