    Exclamation Gray Poop??


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    So I'm back. My geckos have been doing very well lately. Temperatures and humidity are ideal and they eat good and shed without needing assistance. A couple days ago I began feeding them crickets since their mealworms had gone bad and stank so badly that they refused to eat them.

    Yesterday I noticed one had gray poop. It was a bit wetter than the usual dookie but I passed it off as calcium because I also started dusting the crickets.

    However, it appeared again today. It's the usual consistency of poop but it still grayish, though I don't think it's as gray as yesterday's. Any idea what it could be (and is it deadly? That's mostly what I'm wanting to know.)

    Here is tonight's poo:

    I do not know which gecko is pooping like this. The vet is not an ideal choice right now since they told me I'd have to bring the entire setup and drop it off which I am not comfortable with until I can separate my geckos. I cannot separate them until I get another tank.

    I heard shedding poop can be gray. However the only one shedding at the time had not begun to eat the shed yet. I also did a ton of research on cryptosporidiosis, but the symptoms don't match up.

    Although it could be a different gecko because my other 2 shed today and I saw them eat their skin.

    As I said above, all geckos are eating well and none seem to be sick. They have also not lost any weight.

    Any idea what's wrong? Is it the crickets or calcium powder (with d3) and will my gecko die?

    I have found great variety in the poop from time to time. I recommend you continue to monitor. It may be the change to a different feeder. I don't think it's something you have to worry about at this time.
