    The yolk sac is supposed to be outside of the body but its supposed to be fully absorbed by the body. Ive never heard of this happeneing...it looks tired because of lack of nutrition prolly.

    Is there any way to get it to eat right away?

    Hello,

    You shouldn't be bothering the little guy right now. Pipping through the egg in itself is very stressful and energy consumpting on the leos part. Normally after their head is exposed they will stay partially in the egg for some time absorbing the remainder of the yolk sac. When they are well rested, they will pounce up on their own and begin looking for their way to escape the incubator. lol

    You can't speed up the eating process. The leo won't eat until it has made its first shed. (Which it will eat.)

    The shed will happen about 5 days after it hatches if I am rembering correctly.

    It doesn't sound like your leo baby is dying. It sounds like he/she is tired as **** from just busting out of its' egg. Let him chillax and it will all be cool.

    There isn't much you can do at this point but let nature take its course.
