Question Help! Is my gerbil pregnant??

Just over a year a ago I got three gerbils because their owner couldn't take care of them. I thought they were all girls but now I'm not sure! Recently I've noticed one (Ziggy) has become very fat and the other two haven't. Here are some pictures, can you help me decide if she's pregnant or greedy??

Thank you in advance!

I can't see any pictures but it sounds like she probably is. You are going to need to figure out how to tell males from females and separate them, because gerbils can have LOTS of babies. http://www.animalsheltering.org/reso...l_mammals.html

Never had much experience with gerbils, but she looks pretty pregnant to me.
