The anus from Latin anus meaning "ring", "circle" is an opening at the opposite end of an animal's digestive tract from the mouth. Its function is to control the expulsion of feces , unwanted semi-solid matter produced during digestion, which, depending on the type of animal, may include: matter which the animal cannot digest, such as bones ;  food material after all the nutrients have been extracted, for example cellulose or lignin ; ingested matter which would be toxic if it remained in the digestive tract; and dead or excess gut bacteria and other endosymbionts. Amphibians, reptiles, and birds use the same orifice known as the cloaca for excreting liquid and solid wastes, for copulation and egg -laying. Monotreme mammals also have a cloaca, which is thought to be a feature inherited from the earliest amniotes via the therapsids. Marsupials have a single orifice for excreting both solids and liquids and, in females, a separate vagina for reproduction.
