    Default Gecko Poo


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I know it is a weird topic but what does a normal gecko poo look like. My gecko leaves me a couple surprises every morning. They have like a white spot on one end and then the rest is a normal poo about 1/2 inch long I would guess. Is this a normal poo??? Still new to all this. Thanks and Sorry

    There are three parts to the stool sample. There is the brown pellet which is the stool itself, the white part (your question) is urates (crystallized urine) and the last part, the liquid, which is urine.

    A stool sample given to a vet can be examined under a microscope or even a trained eye and can determine parasites. Green poop is a indicator of cryptosporidiosis. I can't think of anything else off the top right now but this should be enough to understanding the indicators of poop which a healthy or unhealthy gecko produces.
