Ostomy - what type are we dealing with???

Hey all, quick question, could anyone shed some light on exactly which type of osteomy Rick has now? I thought that they all would have a round red stoma over which we place the bags. But I was rather surprised to find that the higher one closest to his left chest looks like a bullet hole with poo. Nobody told us about this one, and I can't find a picture online. The bag doesn't collect much poo, so it can be changed infrequently. I'm using the same type of bag for both. Any idea what this "bullet hole" is called??

I haven't had much time to post much lately, but please know that many of you are always with me in spirit.

Hugs to all,
