Is he sick?

This dosen't look normal to me... Norbert pooped on his hammock, but he usually uses a certain corner of his tank to do his business. It's super runny and dry, and the urate is very small and spread out. The red thing is a bell pepper I fed to him, not blood (luckily). He hasn't had any large changes in the way he eats, acts, etc. It just looks very weird and I'm wondering if he could be sick.

Hello,

That does look somewhat like a mess! LOL
What else does he eat right now, is he getting enough water? Sometimes they don't have
as much urate as other times, it depends on what they have eaten,
Was it really smelly, or not?

It's so gross :D . I've been feeding him cherry extract, crickets, and superworms, and I did feed him some bok choy for the first time (he now loves it lol). He also had a red bell pepper, so maybe that has something to do with it? I have really bad allergies from who knows what and can barely smell anything because my nose is so stuffy, but the sock he pooped on was put on a small table next to his tank and I completely forgot about it lol. My dad walked into Norbert's room and it was obvious that he smelt something bad :D . Yesterday, when the poop was fresher, I definitely could tell that he went to the bathroom right as I walked into the room, even without looking into the tank. His poop usually smells really bad, but I think this is the worst smelling so far. Anyways, he seems to be okay and hasn't had any changes to his temperament so I take that as a good thing :)
