About Feces

Feces, also known as excrement, is a waste product from an animal's digestive tract expelled through the anus or cloaca during a process called defecation. There is no singular form in the English language, making it a plurale tantum. There are many colloquial terms for feces, of which some are considered profanity (such as shit and crap) while others (such as poo, poop, number two, deuce, doodoo, dookie and doody) are not. Terms such as dung, scat, spoor and droppings are normally used to refer to animal feces. Stool is a common term normally used in reference to human feces.
