He/she could still be trying to get out of the shell, some can take up to 48hrs to come out of the shell.
Lets hope he/she does not keep us waiting too long:0)

i wouldnt turn it unless you are absolutely sure its upside down Bruce.keep it moist by spraying water and be patient .the longer it is in the dark the more likely that the yolk sac will be absorbed and the little fella should hit the ground running ready for a long bath and some deep substrate to burrow into.

You should be able to tell if its upside down by the nails on the foot. The nails will be pointing upwards if upside down. If he is the right way up, the nails will be pointing downwards.

I don't know how these experienced breeders cope, I'd be a wreck!
