What would you say to this?...

Okay, I know this might sound wierd, but lately there's been a long white stringy thing hanging out of my clown's butt...Is this a bad thing?... 8O

The long white stringy thing hanging out his butt would seem to contradict that.

Remotely possible is your clown has an intestinal disease and is expelling his intestines, in which case he's probably dead by now.

Well, the only reason I said that is because it's there for two or three days...

Our clown had one of those about 8-10 days ago. The white stringy thing is gone and the clown looks as good as ever *shrug*

We have only had him for 2 weeks or so but he does look healthy and eats like a pig.
