I think you may have underestimated your success. You got a lot further with this species than most have. For a first time breeding to go that far I would consider it a success.

Yes they definitely have an egg tooth. When it develops or how large it is I do not know. I would not take your not being able to see it as an indication that it was missing. IMO. A good incubator definitely helps not only with temperature but also with water balance.

:Well, the egg died today. We opened it to reveal what looks like a perfectly formed baby Calabar with a substantial yolk sac. Are they supposed to have egg teeth? He didn't have one. I think the problem was my lack of a decent incubator. Oh well, better luck next year I guess.
