My newt, Nigel, seems to have what looks like 'hair' or little black things sticking out of his butt sometimes and i'm wondering if this is how he poops or if it's there for a bit if he's constipated because he only likes to eat bloodworms, he wont eat newt pellets that i bought from the pet store (i tried 2 kinds). Do i need to be worried about him or is this normal?

These are papillae. They're a sign of sexual maturity. He's... 'excited'.
