Gosh, I can't put my fingers on the necropsy photos I had at one time, but it seems to me that it is about 1/2 the size of a pea.

Hopefully, Ellen will post the absolute correct answer after she asks Bruce.

Bruce said the stomach is 1cm by1/2cm and is shaped like a wine skin flask.
Boy that's pretty small.

I do know that as small as the tummy is, 3 tablespoons of food per night seems like a HUGE amount!
