In Reply to: Problems with hatchlingÖÖ.. posted by jumbo on April 21, 2003 at 09:58:03:
:As some of you might recall I had a female laying only 1 egg (the others were stuck).
:That egg hatched a couple of days ago, but I donít think the hatchling will make it. First off all I think it is blind or has some problems with the eyes. They are closed and the eyelids are black.
:I also have problems feeding it. It will not take any food that I am offering and I canít get it to open its mouth.
:Further it is very inactive and just sits on a rock, most of the time with the head resting on the rock. It seems as it hasnít the strength to support the head for longer time.
:If any of you have experienced something like this or have any suggestions what to do please let me know.
