Student or Learner
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
She’s all alone in London, with a red-haired impressionist girl, who probably has the digestion of an ostrich as most red-haired people have
the digestion of an ostrich = omnivorous stomach
Thanks for your efforts.

I agree 100% with your arguments about the interpretation of the phrase in question..
May I make a second suggestion, namely “a cast-iron stomach/throat”?
Thank you for your kindness.
