143 of incubation.

As CrocDoc reports, it seems like there is little to no yolk in the abdominal cavity. There is an attached piece of umbilical cord there that I have no clue what to do so I put it in the SIM with a piece of wet paper. But it doesn't seem like this guys has reserves to be there for long.
With snakes this is usually no concern but I keep babies in "sterile" type cages. I was affraid to put this baby in contact with branches, moss, etc.

Should I keep it like that for the first 24h? It seems pretty healthy and very alert.

Here's the first pic, when I opened the SIM:


The umbilical cord:


When I grabbed it, right away it started trying to drink drops of water from my fingers. Looks strong!


And here some pictures:







Meanwhile, mom and dad doing their thing:


Have a great weekend everyone!
