The cecal colon is con-sidered to be that portion of the largeintestine into which the ileum empties. In birds, such as the ostrich, thececal colon acts as a distributing cham-ber, the fluid part of the content beingpressed through a sphinctered singleopening in this atrium into the ceca(two long saccules), while the solidportions pass into the colon through arelatively long, contracted area, thececocolic sphincteric tract.
