Sperm Plugs???

Postby wiztch1 » Mon Jul 03, 2017 5:09 pm

So, Beastie was sold to me as female, but left a gift on my leggings today (urate, feces, and this mysterious item) that may indicate she's male? Not positive if it is a sperm plug or just weird urate. Photo of thing below.

To me it just looks like a urate. However, the picture isn't the greatest and it is hard for me to tell

Yes, agree with Janella, hard to tell. Keep a close watch when your skink goes to the bathroom, look to see if anything everts. You may catch a glimpse of his 'boy parts', or if you see similar looking to what you posted once more could indicate male. Sperm plugs are a bit translucent as urates generally are not.

@Janella @splashy07
Alright! I will keep checking. Sorry for the bad pic, it was just so small and my phone camera isn't the best.

Can anyone tell me if this is sperm (the liquid white stuff on the bottom)? Theres a big ball of urates at the center so I'm thinking this might be something else.
