    Have you ever noticed the distinct rings on the underside of their bellies? It appears to be pleats or folds which expand when they are full/healthy/ and pooing?

    My daughter (3yrs) saw it tonight on the glass as we were reading before bedtime by the 30long. I hadn't really noticed it before, but kinda cool.

    no picture from me, but here is one to see

     

    I'm glad I still learning ;)

    Oto's can have really long poo's so it would make sense. I measured one at 6", kinda gross but I'm like that ;)
