I know this might sound stupid for a lot of people but i dont have much experience with T's. Couple of minutes ago i notice a yellow ball of liquid in my G rosea's enclosure, and im concerned bc her poop is normally white, do you think something is going on or am i just being a little crazy? I pulled it out with a cotton swab so i could post a picture. She moved normally when i close the enclosure (she doesnt like that) so hopefully nothings wrong, but like i said, sorry, but im a novice and i rather be dumb and ask than have something happen to her

Looks kind of like a half digested prey item to me. Did you feed her recently?

I mean it could just be really fresh poop.. It's usually whitish yellow..

I've had my Ts poop be from white to yellow to orange. Looks like bolus remains/poop I wouldn't worry about it.

Could be excrement or bolus.

I just want to take the time to say - as I usually do to those who identify as beginners - THANK YOU for asking questions! Some ppl find it offended when labeled a newb and it bugs the living hell out of me, especially BC those ppl tend to have generally bad, combative attitudes, don't like to take advice (even thought they asked for it), and are usually totally dilutional about their husbandry ways and knowledge levels. So, good for u OP. I applaude you!! We were all beginners once - you don't enter ANY hobby as an expert. Hats off to u!!!
