weird poo or sperm?

Hi Everyone, I've had my eastern blue tongue skink Bernard for about 6 months now, and he is about 2. I was told by the previous owner that he was a boy, but Idk if that was just what they were told when they got him. I gave him some boiled egg for easter 2 days ago, and yesterday he did some runny poo which i expected, but today he has done this weird transparent thing alongside his urate. Does it look like sperm/sperm plug, or is it just a weird form of diarrhoea?
Thanks!
(ft. the excellent boi(?) himself nice and cozy in my clean clothes)

Not sperm plug. Eggs can make weird poo.

Darn. I wanted to get to proclaim “congratulations! It’s a boy!” :lol:

I was thinking the same thing...eggs can equal really poo.

Is it only with chicken eggs? I feed mine quail eggs, both hard boiled and raw, and I haven't noticed any strange poos with it. It smells stronger than usual but that's about it.

It's not gospel that it happens, but it sometimes does. When my female northerns are gravid they will not eat solid food, so raw eggs it is. And the after effects are not pretty.

I will have to keep in mind that this can happen so if I happen to see it in the future to not panic! Haha
