    What have you been feeding your crestie? Sometimes when I feed non-insect food, their poop gets a little softer... however it's just a softer pellet, never a liquid. Crestie poop is made up of 3 parts:

    1.) Stool- brown pellet
    2.) Urates- crystallized urine... aka "the white blob"
    3.) Urine- the clear liquid

    If your gecko has really runny poo, you may want to take a fecal sample to the vet to test.

      ive been feeding them crested gecko diet.. after close examination the pooop IS in pellet form but is like very small kind of pressed down form.. i will measure his weight to be sure

      my gecko is showing no signs of sickness as of right now.. i WILL get a fecal examination as soon as i can see that the feces is direclty from this gecko

              Does your gecko have a good appetite?

              Is it lethargic or acting sickly?

              If you pinch the skin together gently does it pop back into place or stay bunched up? :?:

                it has a very good appetite. not lethargic at all. and the skin does not bunch up. whenever i pick it up, it moves around my hand alot but is kinda flighty so when my hand comes and wakes it up it runs really fast till it comes onto my hand.. after that it never wants to get off my hands. it isnt showing ANY signs of being sick at all.. its very strange

                  Good!!

                  Just get the fecal done to be sure but more than likely it is just CGD that is causing the runny poop. My Gargs that eat it have runny poo 50% of the time.

                      Runny poo, with the absence of any other symptoms is usually just dietary.

                      No Worries!

                      ps. have a fecal done anyway to be sure. better safe than sorry.
