faeces

  1. Lizards
    I've got a crested gecko which is about a month old. I know this is probably a silly question, but I'll ask anyway. What does their faeces look like? I know it's eating, and there's smudges on the class, but I'm not 100% sure.

    I have two GALS, ones about the size of a grape and one the size of a plum. I bought some cheap morrisons own multi purpose compost when I first got them and they loved it; that then ran out after a month because my tanks quite large and there's my brothers GAL in his smaller tank (obviously...

    Hi my name is James and I have a bearded dragon and he is 6 years old now. He is usually quite sluggish and not very active but today I looked in his vivarium and I saw about 10 marble- sized pieces of orange and hard material. I think it is faeces but I'm not sure. In the last week my beardie...

    Hi would just like some advice ive had my green tree python for over a month now and tonight he had his first bowl movement. The urates looks pretty healthy but I was wondering what generally is a healthy consistency for the actual faeces? In my opinion it looks quite loose and has a shine to it...

    A while back I posted about my leopard gecko who I believe to be pregnant. I still think she is, but she appears to be in a bad state. She isn't eating her meal worms and her tail is pretty thin. She spends a lot of time out heating herself up and looks quite lethargic. I've also noticed today...

    I took my Royal out to feed on Tuesday and I could see that he had shed so while he was eating I searched and found the shed skin, about an inch or two away from a nice big poo and urate or two. I removed the shed and cleared up the waste, then opened out the shed. It was all intact and looking...

    I have recently starting keeping these lizards and this morning I noticed one of the pair has produced red faeces. Is this blood I am seeing? Or is this normal. I have recently added fruit flies to their diet, could these be creating the red colouration or do I need to be worried about this...

    Hi all, I posted about my gecko a while back when he appeared to have a strange turn (What's wrong with my crestie?...) - and everyone was really helpful (thank you!). At the time I sent a faecal sample to a local vet to be on the safe side but they mucked it up so I ended up going to the...

    I recently adopted a beardie from a family who no longer could care for him. This is the first time I've kept a reptile. I've had him a week. He feeds fine on hoopers and crickets, and I was advised to give him vegetables as well including carrot and broccoli. Each day I've gone through his...
