Has anyone had experience with blind tortoises? This sulcata started hatching Monday, April 19th, 2010. So far it's perfect in every way except that it has no eyes. There's no indication of an eye lid or opening on either side of the head.

I know for a week or so that it will survive off it's yoke sack, but after that I'm not sure if it will sense it's food and eat.

I'm debating whether to have my Exotics vet put the little guy down.
