Fat diposits just doubled in size within 15 minutes - what’s the deal?

I just fed Leo his super worms (4 medium) but within like… 15 minutes the fat disposits beneath his arms just doubled in size! I swear, he wasn’t fat earlier but now he’s got some serious beardie boobs going

4 medium superworms shouldn’t have made him fat in such a tiny amount of time, is he just inflated? I am so confused, is he fat now? His weight hasn’t changed from yesterday when he didn’t have beardie boobs.

Is this just nothing and I’m being rediculous? But why, all of a sudden? *tired sigh* I’ll wait for tomorrow to see if he still has them but why? Why today? Why now? How? That’s what I’d like to know.

Just look at the base of his tail? And those thick thighs? They seem perfectly proportioned to me, not too fatty in the slightest, right?

And those fat pads? They’re slim and squishy, I’ve noticed his neck was a bit thicker than it used to be but I thought it was just him filling out.

I looked into it a bit and it says it could be fat storage, right? But why does it out proportion everything else about his body? Asides from the beardie boobs of course.

And here? It’s the angle that makes him look thick, he was also pancaking a bit but he doesn’t seem fat? Is it just because I fed him? He hasn’t eaten crickets yet.

All he ate was a salad mixed with a tiny bit of scrambled egg and 4 superworms, that’s not enough to make him bloat! I am suriously confused, is he fat or not?

These are hot fat deposits now:

Hello!

He is a good looking colorful boy! He is well hydrated, but not fat. How old is Leo?
If the fatpads puffed up that quickly, he is just well hydrated. Have they gone back down in size?

Hi,
He is 8 months old at the moment. His fat pads look the same as always, his underarms haven’t gone back to normal yet

Sometimes it's water and other times you will find when they get older, they are storing it for later.
Leo looks good to me too.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
