    Question Female Leo pregnant or overweight?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Hey folks,

    So I just picked up a Leo pair today, male and female. I got them off a craigslist ad from a guy who knew very little about them (which is why he was selling them). Upon arriving and actually seeing the two, I realized that the female was very bloated around her mid section. The guy was feeding the two a diet of exclusively Zilla mealworm munchies (basically dead mealworms with added vitamins in them), scattered about the cage so the pair could just eat them whenever.

    Now because it is a male and female pair, I'm not sure if the female is pregnant or simply overweight from being able to eat whenever she wanted. The male seems to have a little bit of extra fat, but nowhere near that of the female.

    Could somebody check out these pictures of her and let me know what's going on?

    Many thanks!

    She does look like she's gravid. I'd provide her a laybox so she can lay them. You don't want her to become egg bound as it can be potentially life threatening.
    If you don't want to keep the eggs, just freeze them overnight and then toss them.
