    Hi All,

    One of my eggs is hatching early. Not sure if the hatchling will survive but as long as it's hydrated and the area is kept sterile it should be fine.

    I've put the 'night vision' cam in to monitor it and you can view it at:

    It's a very slow process and it probably won't hatch out for a few days, but there is a hole in the egg and his leg occasionally wobbles out.

    Here it is;

    The outlook is getting better and better, it's a lot stronger than I thought it would be and I think perhaps it is just a very large baby and there was no more room. I haven't got changed or eaten today, too busy watching. There's only movement occasionally and it lasts for about a minute until you can no longer see anything. At the minute, it's left leg (from the tort's point of view) is to the right of the hole (from our point of view) and the head is just to our left of the hole. I think it must be chipping away at the inside of the egg.
