Question Bombina Orientalis newbie: White smudge or poo?

Hi all!

I am an experienced aquarist but am new to reptiles and amphibians.

ATM I need some help with my Bombina Orientails subadults.

The paludarium:
10 gallon with 50 50 water and land
water depth 12 cm
250 liter per hour canister filter
bioactive cleanup crew: isopods and springtails on land, shrimp in water
bottom water: sand
bottom land: cocopeat mixed with eco earth mix
plants: many
temperature: 20 - 21 degrees

4 subadults

Food and supplements:
small to medium sized crickets
buffalo worms
amphibian vitamin mix
insects gutloaded with: repashy redrum, hikari vibra bites, dennerle crusta

One of the smaller frogs stays hidden quite a bit from the beginning (got them 2 months ago). Yesterday I noticed a snotlike white blubber coming out of her rear end. Today it is still there. On first glance it looks slimey.

As I am new to these frogs, can this be a bacterial/fungal infection? Or is it normal?

Could it be a prolapse?

Thank you for the idea, never thought of that.

It is now gone so either slimey poo or a prolapse which has healed for now.

Thread can be closed for the time being. I will keep an extra eye on this one and will update if anything is worth mentioning.
