    Hi all,

    One of my knob-tail geckos started to have some trouble moving and hasn't been eating well recently. I'm giving her liquid calcium now, but I noticed that there is something sticking out of her cloaca and was wondering if it is a prolapse or just either fecal matter or remnants of an unfertilized egg (see attached pictures dry and after soaking in suger water).
