This little guy came into the world ass-backwards' literally. For some reason the back of his shell split the egg open in the back rather than cutting the front open with the egg tooth, then he just laid there for 2 days with his ass sticking out and his head burried inside the egg untill his yoke was absorbed. I guess he was just to big of a fat ass, so I think I will name him Cartman (as in south parks Cartman) He look perfectly healthy and no extra or deformed scutes, he's pretty shy now but I'm sure he will warm up in time.
