Unusual color on poop

Hello. My beardie is about 18 months old and usually he poops normal. Its been hard lately to find super worms and dubias in the stores. So i have been giving him Can O Crickets, as a bug source, since he is not fond of live crickets. They scare him. Lol. Anyway, he hardly chews the crickets. He chews maybe once or twice, then swallows. When he poops, i can clearly make out the exact shape of a cricket. He doesnt do that with worms or dubias, so i just dont know. And lately he's been very picky about his greens too. He usually does very well with mustard greens. And i cut up carrots and celery. So today he poops out a cricket with a white part at the end, like usual. Only today, there was an orange blob in the middle of the stool. I have picture.

Thanks Kerri. No more cans. Got it.
His basking temp is about 100. It's a thermometer in his terrarium. I know I need to buy a digital one. Gonna do that today. So do you know what that orange in his poop might mean in the picturec above?

It looks like part of a undigested cricket--- if hes eating them really fast and not completely chewing them up thats the way it came out- a lot of times dragons will inhale BSFL so fast that they come out whole undigested from them eating them so fast -- I wouldnt worry about it unless this continues -- just keep an eye on his poop and get him so good live insects --

Thank you so much. Yes you can clearly see the shape of a cricket. Lol. I was just concerned with that orange part. But thank you again. I really appreciate it.
