NMDS plots representing gut microbial community similarities based on a Bray-Curtis and b Jaccard distances of the stomach, the midgut (beginning of small intestine, middle of small intestine, ileum), the hindgut (the large intestine and the cloaca) and cloacal swabs. Gut sections were merged into major gut regions to increase clarity of the ordination. Ellipses represent 95% confidence intervals
