    Default I think a superworm took a pee on me :(

    As i was picking one up with the tongs some kinda liquid squirted out of it onto my hand.

    I also noticed yesterday when i rubbed a worm on Daisy's nose to try and get her to eat it also had some kinda liquid on, and Daisy didnt like it at all. Was rubbing her face on the floor till i gave her a squirt of water to wash it off and then she was fine.

    Did the worm pee on me or was it something else?

    Im beginning to hate super worms more every time i come into contact with then

    I don't know if it's urine, or what it is, but I've been hit by a few, too, while putting them into enclosures.

    I get grossed out EVERY time, too.
    *gag*!

    It's nasty.
    Supers ARE nasty, but my geckos love them.

    I don't know if it's "pee" but I have seen stuff squirt out of them when my leo strikes or when I pick them up with tweezers.

    Yes it's a defense trait, for example when you catch one and put it in paper (subtrat for a viv) then days later it will smell like DEATH, horrible... Sometimes that liquid will really splash like it was a shot so be careful

    Not as bad as getting guts squirted on your face as your gecko bites down on a roach
