They look like footballs (American). It disintegrates pretty quickly. They may or may not poop in the water. I've found mine usually don't poop in the water. So you'll have to change your substrate fairly often (once every other month or so).

Yes, little dark slimy footballs (American).

Here, since a picture is worth 1000 words, is a picture of some fresh Tylototriton verrucosus poop.

If you're interested, here is the context of my Tylos.

I just posted on them today, in the most recent picture you can see the poop in its natural habitat.
