I have two young sister dragons that are so fat I'm wracking my brain trying to find out if anything's wrong. I've dosed them for parasites, and they're going, so it isn't impaction.
They are my "garbage disposal" dragons - always willing to finish another dragon's leftovers. Could it jsut be weight?
P.S. It doesn't help that the fattest one has a habit of sucking air in when she's nervous - never had another one do that trick, but a more experienced person saw her do it and said it's probably an instinctive reaction to look bigger and tougher.
