Hi Ronst3r,

Not much experience with lizard poops/urates, but I know snake defecation will change based on diet. Different food types will change stool consistency. Usually fish eating species produce looser, runnier stools than a mouse eater. A mouse eating species fed chicks will have a change in stools (softer, different color, etc). Tort stools change to based on food type as well. The stools will change going from a green to a fruit, etc.

It could be just food type, not necessarily a "good" food vs. "bad" food scenario. Can you pinpoint a change in dietary item prior to the urate color change?

Hope this helps.
