Why is internal anal sphincter harder than external anal sphincter ?

small thing (not the thumb, the one next to it)goes easily into external anal sphincter but only the first 1 cm of it goes easily, and then it becomes so hard when it reaches internal anal sphincter.

This is Very Normal as the Internal anal sphincter is usually harder, except if u used some lubricants as KY Jelly or others to introduce the pointer finger.
