  1. The first one’s tail looks like some kind of worm attached maybe? I’m not sure tbh I haven’t seen that before.

    Eggs can come in various colors, the two illnesses (fungal and parasitic) that I know of that affect the underside of the abdomen like that are either white and fuzzy or green and micro plant looking. I can’t quite make out in the photos if the yellow/orange color on her underside are egg shaped, if they’re eggs she’ll be fanning them.
