I have a few questions. What causes urates to become yellow or orange in color? Is it bad? How to prevent this from happening or get rid of the problem? I wanna know ahead of time so I could prevent it before it actually occurs. .:rolleyes::confused:

Thanks for clearing my mind of the many thoughts lol. That's all? What should I absolutely worry about seeing in my chameleon poo?:eek:

watch for white urate to ensure hydration. over supplementing can also cause urate to colour even if the cham drinks a lot. a tiny bit of yellow on one end isn't uncommon in even a healthy but older cham.

consistently very runny poop isn't a good sign, though the occasional runny poop if the cham has been eating lots of juicy prey recently is understandable.

smelly poop is a bad sign. possible parasites

a few undigested parts now and then are okay - could mean your cham was given more food than it could digest. undigested bugs on a regular basis points to a problem.
