Just curious if anyone know what might have caused one of my pardalis eggs to almost burst the neonate throught the side of the egg. All that was sticking out was a tail and back legs. I have never witnessed this before, and the rest of the clutch still look normal. They are very close to hatching, and he was fully developed, but I pulled him out and he didn't survive long. I don't want this to continue with other eggs, hopefully it was just a defect.
