Poop looks funny!

Post by peach75 on Tue Feb 28, 2012 9:37 am

Hey all so here is the story. This is the second time this week the poop looks this color. It is a bit mushy too. It's from one of my males who is 5 years old. For over a week he has ate crickets and only a few mealworms because I ran out of silks. He is still hungry as ever, not losing weight, Temp reads 94 under his hide. i had to borrow a digital camera from a neighbor so I din't know how to get it to focus. I don't know how much you can see, but I tried. let me know if anyone has seen there geckos poop look like this.

You just caught it early on, right after he pooped it out so it hadn't dried out yet.

I tried looking close, but like you said, they were kind of out of focus.

yea, sorry. It's not right next to the brown part tho because when I picked it up it rolled so it's like an inch away. All the way at the bottom on top of the finger of the glove. You can see a tiny bit of yellow that was on the tip. Thanks for looking Smile

If it's yellow that means your leo could be dehydrated. It should be nice and mostly white.

It was only the tip, but this is the first time I ever seen even at tiny bit of yellow. He has 2 water dishes and never drinks water. I do use water gel for the crickets and fruits and veggies for the mealworms. I tried to soak him before because the vet said it's good to soak them once a week, but he ain't haven't it. He was going crazy trying to escape so I never did it again. I don't know how to get him to drink water.

Take some spring water and mist it onto the walls of your viv. Seeing as how it's spring water it shouldn't leave any water marks. Eros loves it when I spray his viv, he comes out and licks everything Smile

They don't always drink from a bowl, some do some don't. They drink water from droplets more. You often can see them lick condensation off the inside of the warm hides. If you want to get your gecko to drink, just build a sauna so it gets nice and steamy inside a container. They'll go in and drink the water from the inside.

It's said that sometimes leopard geckos can't see water, so they don't actually know it's there even if you put it in a bowl. I have no idea how true that is, because I have a few geckos that do drink off their bowl on a regular basis.
