Also, if you suspect that your leopard gecko may be impacted, I suggest taking a look at this article that I wrote here as well. I'd say leopard geckos do pee as with almost every other animal but i honestly don't know, its like birds...they pee n poo at the same time.
Leave it there for the course of a few days and this should “trick” your gecko into thinking that this is where they poop and this is where they always have been pooping and hopefully start to go there from here on out. Green and runny stools can also indicate internal parasites, but this is less likely. This can mean that you will need to search for and clean the poop once or few times a day, or only few times a week, depending on leopard gecko’s age if your leopard gecko is on substrate such as paper towels. If you pooped where you slept and everyone tracked everyone by smell, then that would be a very fast and easy way to deal with some harsh consequences. Leopard gecko will also have trouble lifting its body, and will be touching the ground with its belly when walking or even dragging. The good thing is that they are fairly small in size, even as adults, so their poop is never that big no matter what you feed them. How much they are fed will play a huge factor in exactly how much they defecate.eval(ez_write_tag([[300,250],'reptilejam_com-box-3','ezslot_5',107,'0','0'])); I wish there were a cut and dry answer for how much each leopard gecko poops, but the fact of the matter is that each one is different, and determining how much each one does it is almost impossible because they all digest food differently and all have different diets as well.
Another possibility is that these can be fly maggots in the poop, if you have left the poop for some time in the tank. We will also talk about changes in the consistency and color of leopard gecko’s poop – such as grey, green, liquid, mucus, yellow, white poop and more. A good way to do this is to lay a thick couple layers of toilet paper or paper towel in the corner that you’d like for them to poop in and then place the poop that is already in the tank into that corner on top of those layers.
If there’s one thing that leopard geckos are subjected to the most, then it’s definitely stress. If you use any sand or pebbles in the tank and notice it in your leopard gecko’s stool, change the substrate immediately.

And the fact that this is a common behavior amongst almost every leopard gecko leads me to believe that it is probably a hardwired trait that they learned while being in the wild. It plays a huge role in your leopard geckos well being and should really be paid attention to in order to avoid digestive issues. If you handle your leopard gecko after feeding, it might regurgitate food and pee on you. If you’re only feeding your leopard gecko three days out of the week, then they will likely only poop on those days.
But even then, if they’ve trained themselves properly and they poop a lot, they will continue to poop in that same spot and not just go all over the tank just because there is already one small pile of poop there. If you believe this may potentially be the issue your leopard gecko is facing, I recommend taking a look at. So when it comes to feeding them, make sure to hand them their food one at a time and then wait a little while for them to fully chew and digest the food until offering them anymore.
If you have just brought your leopard gecko home, do you know which substrate it had in the tank? Leopard geckos tend to poop in one spot as soon as they become used to their setup, but they can change the spot after cleaning.
Bioactive setup will help break down the poop and tiles will need wiping.
