    That doesn't look like poop to me and you really had me going with that first photo. LOL

    I think maybe it's something in the decorations making that powder as well. I'd say remove them asap.

    Agree, good idea. I haven't thought of this either.

    Good thought! I use real branches in my cages & have found some with beetles boring thru them, dropping some wood powder here & there.

    I can remember seeing some orange powdery urates before* (none of my current snakes) but I cannot tell you what it means, or even if it's significant. If this snake seems healthy otherwise, I'd just keep a watch on.
    *only a small amount though, not the entire urate pile.

    You sure you didn't pour cinnamon in cage? lol

    In all seriousness though, I have never seen anything like that either, and never read anything about urates being that color and texture.

    I've never seen that before. It looks like sand. Or rust...

    started a topic [Defecation] Orange powdery poop

    Orange powdery poop



    Asking for an acquaintance: has anyone ever seen any poop like this? Some info: it's a 2-3 year old 0.1 hypo boa, never bred, has normal looking eurates in addition to the powder. Post-powder poop, the boa usually goes into shed. The owner of the boa said she thinks it could be linked to ovulation. Thoughts? Thanks!
