Irian Jaya or Halmahera

Postby earthdragon2369 » Sun Mar 14, 2021 6:17 pm

Irian Jaya or Halmahera? Mushi has a bright pink/red belly, spotted white and black legs, rustic brown and black top, mostly pink tongue with pale blue on the tip. Two years old, had since 4 weeks. Wasn't able to pop and no plugs, thinking female with male characteristics. Thoughts?

What do you mean "wasn't able to pop"?

I agree with the halmahera guess, but best bet is a vet! And by pop I think they mean trying to evert the hemipenis?

If you are not a professional or a veterinarian I would not suggest popping. You can do permanent damage.
