    She looks a bit chunky, but not obese. I personally keep my phelsuma on the slim side since they are a more active species. What are you feeding?

    I agree with Resavius. I wouldn't let her gain weight.

    "fat cells"? do you mean the calcium sacs on the sides of her neck?

    those are full of calcium reserves. they have nothing to do with being overweight.
