Poop, also known as feces, is the solid or semisolid matter that is eliminated from the digestive tract of animals and humans. It consists of undigested food, bacteria, and other substances. In humans and other mammals, feces are usually brown in color and have a distinctive smell. They are eliminated through the anus and are usually formed in the large intestine. Feces can provide important information about an individual’s health, as they can contain markers of certain diseases or other conditions. However, it is important to handle feces safely, as they can contain harmful bacteria and parasites that can cause illness if transmitted to others.
