    Human fecal matter varies significantly in appearance, depending on diet and health. Normally it is semisolid, with a mucus coating. Its brown coloration comes from a combination of bile and bilirubin, which comes from dead red blood cells.


    Yes, there is a 'special' scent to meconium (baby's first poops). Amniotic fluid has quite a scent too...but there are worse...sometimes I would take off my clothes and shoes in the shed...and then go inside to the house and put it all in the washer! Yuck!

    During a "rain date" I will entertain you with all sorts of stories- LOL
    Follow, Follow! When does the Teddy Bear's season start and how long do they play (eg. March-Aug)

    This happened to the Washington Redskins when a new owner took over- he made a lot of mistakes and the team and Fan Base have suffered. I hope that the Rangers pull through and can have winning seasons again!!! Follow, Follow

    It ranges from yellow to black...both yellow and black aren't necessarily good signs.  Newborn babies have dark olive green poop at first.


    Olive green poop smells great eh?
    My memories not great, but BOY do I remember that smell.......

    Did the same myself,left a trail of vomit from the living room to the bathroom,couldn't hold it in.......LOl

    How d'you know it's brown d'you look at it?


    Everyone should look at theirs. A lot of times people do not know they have an issue going on inside of them. An unhealthy stool can give a first clue to all kinds of issues. I'm sure you've looked at yours too Philip.

    I never bother looking at excrement it looks and smells unpleasant as it's meant to.

    Doctors do advise that you look.It gives a very good indication of whether any symptoms you may be experiencing are caused by certain internal problems.
