    I'm not too sure what happened, but the first time he shed (after I got him/her) it appeared. I noticed it the day after he/she shed and I didn't know what happened. Luckily, it doesn't seem to bother him/her too much so I just leave it alone.

    thank you, does ovulation cause bloating? Also, is there anything different that I need to do while she is ovulating?

    they go thru cycles where they start producing eggs then re-absorb them if unfertilized, tho in some cases females can also lay the unfertile eggs but seems less common.

    If I remember correctly, infertile eggs usually develop fungus right? Is there a proper way to dispose of them?

    It's a male. Make sure he has enough things to climb on in his terrarium and don't feed him just mealworms. Buy some crickets, those are really high in protein and very low in fat. If you wanna deal with those jumpy a*shol*s, buy some roaches, dubias are great if they are legal in your country. I would feed him crickets and/or roaches on work days and mealworms on weekends. Variety is always good.

    I was having a hard time sexing him because many people are saying different things. I might have to wait until he's a little older just to be sure. I used to feed him crickets and he wasn't having the bloating problem, but I switched to mealworms because they don't jump lol. I'll get him some crickets the next time I stop at the store though. Thank you for your help!

    Is your UTH controlled by a thermostat?
