How much larger is the small intestine?

    In most animals, the length of the small intestine is roughly 3.5 times body length is about 22 feet in length and 1 inch in diameter. When the body dies, the muscles relax and the small intestine becomes nearly twice the normal size. The absorptive surface area of the small intestine is roughly 250 square meters – the size of a tennis court. The large intestine is about five feet (or 1.5 meters) long and is much broader than the small intestine.
