Similarly one may ask, what causes purple bird poop?

Birds kidneys are designed to conserve water for the body, so instead of normal urine, they produce uric acid. But it's the dark stuff that is causing the stains.

Droppings should be odorless. Feces should be firm and dark brown or green in color, depending upon the species of bird and the diet.
