to me [sorry been goin through your photobucket] both skinks stumpy and skanky look male, and both very overweight.
but one could be gravid..but the tails just are FAT.

and is it stumpy or skanky cos you have the pics labelled as stumpy and pregnant but stumpy appears to have a tail??

Ok thank you, Dont worrys its not my photobucket account! My sisters! One is definatly female, not sure wich one. When we rescued them, there were eggs in the tank, but they had apperntly been eating them.....
should we put them on a Diet, its just they were so thin when we got them, maybe we have been over feeding them! Diet!!!

yeh i think a diet is in order.. or just more excersise...or less waxies or dog food if thats what ur feeding ,im suprised they get fat on crix but im sure its possible lol.
we feed ours all they will eat but they remain slender so i dont know lol.

i just assumed stumpy would be the one without the tail thats all, although if its skanky i guess that kinda makes sense.

Stumpy has no tail. but its growning back, and Skanky lost his/her tail but its grown back.

as they are both fat then it sugests that its not gravid.
but you never know.

ok, i got confused [and still am] because the photo is labelled stumpy and has a tail but it doesnt matter.
