Not really sure if this is a scat or a pellet or if it's mammal or reptile, c2cm and atop our 2ft garden wall.

My fault for posting in Mammals but I'm now wondering if it could be Reptilian? Geckos, Snake-eyed Lizard and Starred Agama all abound in our garden.

Those reptiles all abound in your garden but you've only found one dropping? Does that very fact suggest a transient mammal rather than a resident reptile?

How often do reptiles excrete?

Cheers

Three more today, very close to the same spot suggests a sedentary animal to me?

Or its being used as a territorial scent post. I suppose it couldn't be a bird's pellet? What seems to be in it?

They're shiny, look to be composed of insects.

I found one on the ground an another on top of the wall but I suppose the one on the ground could have blown off the wall.
