:) Hello my new little horsefield hatchling arrived this afternoon while we were at the hospital.It started hatching yesterday morning,this morning half the egg was broken and you could see her moving and when we got back from the hospital this afternoon she was walking about in the incubator.She's so cute,she weighs 11 gramms,i have taken lots of pictures,she's very active she's been walking about her tabletop home and she has now dug down in the soil,thankfully i watched were she has dug as i cannot see her at all at the moment.I'm so excited. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
