Inside a baboons mouth there are cheek pouches with the capacity to hold as much food as their intestines do.

I'd say False. The pouches inside a baboon's cheeks can certainly hold a lot of food for eating later - probably as much as its stomach - but not as much as the whole of the intestines could. (Remember that the intestines are very long and coiled, with an amazing amount of space inside of them.)

I concur own ;) their cheek pouches can hold as much food as their stomachs and not their intestines.
