Hi! This is my first time posting on here!

My little guy, Abner, has me worried. So I took him to the vet last week and he received a clean bill of health. Then this weekend I took him to a hedgehog convention (a three hour driver there and three hours back). At the convention he got his nails clipped and his first bath. I also introduced live meal worms into this diet the day before. The day after the convention, yesterday, I was playing with him and he pooped a very dark green tar like poop. When I rubbed the poop into a tissue it was a lighter green. Today he pooped mostly normal (brown, looks like toothpaste) and a little bit of the tar like poop. Could this weird poop just be caused by stress of the travel and new experiences? Please let me know!

Abner is 4 months old and I have had him since he was 6 weeks old.

Its most likely stress related from all the changes this weekend. Try to give him only his kibble for the next few days and let him relax. You can still hold him etc, just nothing else new. If he stops eating or wheeling or if anything else happens then he should see a vet.
