One of my Cham doesn't eat too much! He poops normal with clear white urinary crystal and cylindrical feces. But comparing to the other cham(3 month Younger than him) i feel like he is somehow so skinny, can somebody tell me if he is healthy or having some parasites issue. i

If you have concerns it's worth it to take a fecal sample to the vet. The fresher the sample the better. Refrigerate it in plastic if you can't get it in right away.
