I have had these three fire-bellies for about a year now, and I have always observed when feeding and have never noticed one getting more food than the others. But lately this one in particular has gained TONS of weight. I know for a fact he doesn't get more food than the others because like I said I observe feeding, and I was informed that bloating affects the entire body not just the abdominal area. Is that true? I only have them in this small cup for comparison reasons, they live in a ten gallon. Can anyone give me an opinion or point me to a thread that will help? I'm not too concerned because he is not acting sick in any way and acts like a perfect newt :D But I don't understand how it could be pregnant because I thought you had to go through a whole ordeal to induce pregnancy. OH and his/her cloaca is not swollen, but it seems to jut/stretch out further than usual so i have no idea what sex it is. The other one has a very swollen cloaca hinting that it is a male while the other's is not. Thanks!

Well that's surprising!! How do I know if they will be fertilized, or if they will just be blanks?? Can anyone point me to a reliable forum or link?? Because I have no idea what to do and I can't seem to find anything online. How do I ensure they will be fertilized?? Anything will help! Thanks for your help!!!

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
