Question ackie help

Hi i have 2 ackies, which i was told was a male and female. However after asking on here i was told ppl thort it was the other way around. today i have got the smaller one out that i was told was male, and it has a very big stomach ( see pix). Now i don't know if it is justbeing piggy, is actually a female and gravid, or if the other one in comparison is too small. Now the other one that i was told was female i have never seen eat, and was fed on 2 pinkies a day wen i bought her from the pet shop, which was obv wrong. But i have never seen her eat any worms or crickets, but i have had her for ages now. surely if she wasnt eating she wud die?

so now i dont no if the smaller one is fat or gravid, or if teh bigger one is skinny. Any ideas? Also i cant feel anything remotely like eggs in her belly lol. The pix are just of teh smaller one.
