    Hi

    Mucus is a natural substance secreted from intestinal tract for free movement of it's contents. Excess mucus may indicate infection or allergy. Green color to stool may be due to eating of green leafy vegetables in excess/ or having foods with green coloring substance/taking iron supplements may give green color to stools sometimes. If green color of stools persist for long it might be intestinal infection.

    Hi

    Dark red or black colored stools indicate that there is some internal bleeding mainly in the upper Gastro intestinal tract. What is causing this internal bleeding needs evaluation. Please see your doctor for evaluation and management.
