    Most likely a stress thing. But just to be sure, what is the temperature of the enclosure? Plants will help them de-stress.

    I also have three fire bellies. I love to just sit there and watch them. They have personalities and can be in bad and good mood. Which has a lot to do with their color. A naturally lime green fire belly won't turn dark dark brown and a brown or tan one won't turn lime green. They just have different shades depending on their moodand their current temprerature. Just make sure to watch their eyes and abdomen. If their eyes get cloudy or their abdomen gets big, check them and the water because that means they are sick.
