    One of my Testudo hermanni hatchlings had a very large yolc sack. I never thought it would go so good as it did. 2 Days later it was all absorbed and only a little was left.
    I had it in the incubator during this time and put him/her on a tape roll so the yolc sack was hanging free.
    So the lesson is even when it looks bad it can go very well.
    My Testudo hermanni eggs usually hatch after 54 days but this hatched after only 51 Days.

    ~ We see this at times, usually absorbs without any issues.
