Mollie don't make a nest to have there babys, But they will get real slow and stay motionless a day or two before droping the babys. Hanging around at the top setting on top of stuff. This is a behaver. Of a female geting ready to drop. Mollies will get real square shaped in the anul area, afew dys before droping the babys.
