Talking Jumping lizard!

I'm writing this for a friend. His lizard jumped off a desk and was peeing in mid-air(I guess thats because it was scared). When his mom caught it, her hand was wet. He just wanted to share this funny story with you guys(he's not a member yet).

That's.... odd... either way... correct me if I'm wrong.. but lizards don't pee (liquid pee)... they excrete uric acid in a solid form to save water... the white dot on the poo is the uric acid. I don't know if this only applies to some lizards... what type of lizard was it? Maybe it was another type of defence...

I'm just telling you what he said. I don't know anything about reptiles. It was a fat tailed gecko. I don't know if that makes a difference.

They don't really pee, but sortof poo-pee, like a bird. Yeah, there's uric acid, but there's a little wet stuff too, its not 100% solid waste.

Could it be anything else that made her hand wet?

Aw wow furryscaly! From HC I'm guessing, man your a all around reptile forumer! =P

Yeah they can pee-poo like stuff. My Ameiva did that when I took him to the vet.

Some lizards do have 3 parts to their waste. I do not know much about a fat tailed gecko, but iguanas have solid poo, goopy white stuff (uric acid), and liquid pee.
