    I'm not all that familiar with BTS's, but based on the photograph I would think that these are indeed sperm plugs. The plug is the result of shedding the male's hemipenes and you can see that general shape formed in the white structures.

    You may be a better judge at confirming this having seen the skink's normal urates before as comparison, but my guess based on this picture is plugs.
