Default Fat Newt

Just acquired two fire bellied newts one of them seemed a little big after eating two mealworms(both were cut in half) a couple of days ago and still looks it now. If you can look at the pics attached, could you tell me if I'm worried for nothing or is that bloat

Thank you for responding, looking around on the Internet I found that most newts are chubby lol, just nervous I guess

Also, I just wanted to say if you don't know already, meal-worms aren't a good feeder for newts, chopped Canadian night-crawlers (Worms) that you can get at a fishing store or Walmart, and they are much more nutritious than meal-worms, and they are easier to digest
