1. your hatchling is taking f/t fuzzies when left alone...that is great, and it will become more agressive, I notice a sort of personality change at about 36", when they are seemingly bold and not fearful of imagined predators etc. It will likely feed more and more agressively with time. Tiny indigos indeed have a lot of dangers to face in the wild, I am not surprised they are somewhat "shy" and retiring as neonates, it makes sense.

2. I am inclined to agree with Matt, and that looks like an umbilical scar to me. I have seen many like it, and some do not dissapear over time, others may... The controversial split or single scutes- subcaudal that have caused so much concern tend to be less uniform, and often variable locations. I am guessing you have a genetically diverse and healthy animal there...I wish you luck, keep feeding it and have fun. Vic
