If you are learning English it is best to avoid words like "shitting" in formal writing. OK to use with your friends, but not during formal occasions.

Pi Xiu is an animal from Chinese legend. It has a big mouth and eats continually. Strangely though, the food never seems to get digested; Pi Xiu never needs to "get comfortable". Because of this "talent", people think it will bring in wealth and treasure - amassing fortunes, metaphorically.
