Sounds like the urine to me....

Its a milk white sticky substance that come out along with the poo! Thats the lizards wee! absolutely nothing to worry about...

could also be excess calcium being expelled as it doesn't always all get absorbed and sometimes comes out the other end...especially if their metabolism is high...
what calcium you giving them?

oh, the stuff they make that cost more cos it is for leopard geckos but really is the same as the cheaper stuff...that stuff?:lol2:

yeah it could well have been that if over supplemented it tends to come out the other end...also like gaz said could be excess urea...bit of both i reckon..

i never knew that either, i always wondered where their wee went, i thought the white stuff was part of their pooh.. On the cricket side of things all of my leos eat a varied amount, my 6month old leo eats less then the others, ruffly around 3 large crickets and a few wax worms every other day, where as my other hatchlings eat around 5-6 a day, excluding boom boom (aka fatty boom boom) who will eat between 10-15 crickets a day..he is very young and the crickets are tiny tho..
