Current Problem - About 2 weeks ago Commah displayed two "deflated" round disks protruding from his vent. I panicked, but by the time I went to take a picture they were gone (not sure if they were passed, or taken back in?). Today I noticed again they were protruding from his vent again. I got the picture, but by the time I got him a bath ready (that was my first reaction), they were gone again. Whats going on?! Not sure if this is a vet issue or not- if it is I have no problem going- just didn't want to waste time going for a "normal" behavior. I'M SO WORRIED!

P.S. he has also been acting much more aggressive towards me. Not sure if it is related...

They are sperm plugs. and hes an adult, its normal for them to get more aggressive as they get older.
 
Thank you.
I know he was bound to get more mean- just wasn't sure if it was related to the "problem".
Weird question- what "are" sperm plugs/what do they mean?

they are exactly what they sound like.

sperm that he isn't using that he has to get rid of.

it means, hes an adult and wants a girlfriend.
