Toiletreader asks:

What are the chemical/physical/biological components of feces? What is skatol?





Dear Toilet Reader,

Thanks for the question!

Do you mean regular poo, or MY poo? My poo is made up of:

Smelly brown stuff

Wine

Skatol is:

(n.) A constituent of human faeces formed in the small intestines as a product of the putrefaction of albuminous matter. It is also found in reduced indigo. Chemically it is methyl indol, C9H9N.

or, if you prefer:

3-Methylindol Udskriv artiklen

Andre navne: Skatol, scatol

3-Methylindol er en indolforbindelse der dannes ved mikrobiel nedbrydning af aminosyren tryptophan. 3-Methylindol forekommer vidtspredt i naturen, fx i f

Looks like you used a mechanical translator on something that was written in Finnish.

Wow, with all the chemical components of this stuff, maybe Wonderingrose can get started on poop therapy.

Why does coyote poop not stink and dog poop does?

If a tree falls on a coyote, does he get little stars dancing around his head?

Huh??? I said scat to the cat after he shat on my hat. Drat. What does this have to do with scatol in my shat-all? Beats the hell out of me.

if translated into english from danish, it means: 3-methylindol is a indolforbindelse formed by microbial degradation of the amino acid tryptophan. 3 methylindol occurs widely dispersed in nature, such as ifces, tobacco, cheese, milk and grisekd (ornelugt). The link is very weak concentration in a flower-like smell, while the ihjere concentrations has a lusty fkal odor. Does the use of perfume and is present in manure. The link is soluble in most organic oplsningsmidler and slightly soluble in water.

Thank you la de da da but the translation meant no more to me than the original Finnish.

I would like to know the composition of animals that would be found to eat predominately grass, like a cow. I am interested to what degree they are able to degrade the constituents of grass. Any ideas?

Mikey Mike, Most animals that I am aware of are composed of meat. Delicious meat that can be fried, fricasseed, boiled, baked, barbecued, steamed, or just eaten raw.

I don't know Chief.I don't think all animals can be made of meat because I have this cat.It's 100% pure evil.I love my animals,but this cat needs it's ass kicked big time.And last I checked,meat isn't evil.

Oh, come on, folks--MikeyMike merely failed to proofread! He meant, of course, the composition of those animals' POOP! The answer is--well, I don't know the answer, but I'd guess that a cow's digestive system isn't exactly fine tuned, or it wouldn't need 4 stomachs. Never analyzed their results.

The bovine digestive system is a marvel of efficiency when it comes to converting cellulose into usable food for humans. The digestive system parts are edible and I am having a soup made from the first compartment of the cow's stomach for my breakfast shortly. Menudo, very popular in Mexico, is a hearty soup made from the rumen of the cow.

The second compartment, the reticulormen or just reticulum, is called the honeycomb tripe in butcher-speak and is highly prized as human food in many countries.

The third compartment, the omasum, is usually called the "butcher's bible" in slaughter houses because of the many layers, like pages in a book, it possesses. It is normally not eaten in America but is the most highly prized part of the cow in many Southeast Asian countries. It is the devil to clean because of its many layers but can be cut into chewy little pieces that resemble stars and then made into an extremely tasty soup.

Here is a URL for cutting and pasting for any of you that want to learn more about this wonderful digestive tract.

There is a lot of cellulose left over that even the cow can't digest so they squirt out shit in prodigious quantities Mikey Mike. I hope this at least partially answers your question. Now I'm off to my cow stomach breakfast.

Chief said "It is the devil to clean because of its many layers but can be cut into chewy little pieces that resemble stars and then made into an extremely tasty soup."

I'm guessing there is more than one reason that beef broth is brown.
