Brief Answer: Large intestine Detailed Answer: The large intestine is the site of mixing and forming of feces; this is the location of colonic bacteria which make final nutritional changes during digestion, and where a significant portion of water is reabsorbed. Hope that helps, wish you the best, Dr Brenes-Salazar MD Mayo Clinic MN
