    Is this every poo or just occasionally.
    About every 7-8 poops will be what is called a cecal poop which is usually brown and wet (like pudding).
    A lot of times it has to do with diet. If they have had something with a lot of water content (melons, ripe fruits, etc.) it can be a bit more loose.

    Here's a poop chart for reference:

    They have people scraps. Whatever we don't eat. Tropical fruit mix was one of them, he destroyed the grapes...

    Could have been the fruit.
    I would just keep an eye on him and if he has constant loose poop, you may want to limit the treats/scraps to see if that helps, if not worming him would be second avenue to pursue.
