Default Does this look like bloat in my CFB?

I just got a second CFB yesterday, and it's much larger than the other one I currently have. At first I thought maybe it was just a bit chunky, but then I thought, what if this is a female and is gravid or if the newt has bloat? Or is it just a little fat? Here's some pictures of it. I don't know, maybe it's nothing at all, but it's comparatively larger than the newt I've had for the last 2 months, but maybe this is older or a different sex or whatever.

I have bought 2 a week ago...and one is like yours, is a female, the male is more thin...I read that females are allways a little bit more "fat" than males I asked that too in other forum and they said she look healthy...so don't bother you

By the way...what you feed them?
