    Default What should leos poop look like?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hello! I've only had my leo for 3 weeks now and he hasn't eaten for 2 of those so I don't have any idea, other than the pictures, about how the poop should look like. His first poop was 2 days after I got him and I'm not even sure if it was a poop since it looked like a big capsule pill made of sand and I think it was because he was housed on sand in the pet store. Next poop was all white and that came after shedding so I'm not worrying about that. After he started eating, he had this huge poop on the 2nd picture (after 5 crickets) and it looked exactly the same as the 'sand pill' he pooped after I've gotten him, with same sandy structure but it had a brown color to it. I was relieved and he started eating more and more. He's had about 25 crickets since and he pooped 2 times but both of his poops looked like the 1st picture, pale with a yellow urate? He doesn't seem dehydrated, I even moved his water dish closer to his hides. He spends some time in his moist hide too and I guess he could be drinking there too. Maybe the white colour is due to new supplements, as I've seen on some other forum/thread? I'm not too worried as he's a happy little gecko, he's really active and has a good appetite but I'd like to hear another opinion

    The second one looks more like a normal poop to me. The first on ebooks like it's all urates.

    Often the urate is half the size of the feces. Desired urates are white.
