Question: Could a small intestine ever be used as a skipping/long rope?

  1. Hi pommypomtom,

    Interesting question- Not sure anyone has studied the elastic/structural properties of the small intestine to make a skipping rope – it is long though about 7 meters in humans and up to 40 meters in cattle.

    It is well know that the animals intestine have been made into catgut (short for cattle gut!) – a type of fiber made from the wall of sheep small intestine and made into strings for musical instruments!

    Theoretically it is possible to make small intestine into a long rope.
