    I checked on my females this morning at 9:45 and noticed Abby had two babies already born and working on the rest. I pulled out her hide and she did not seem to mind so I watched the whole process and had several interesting events/observations.

    At one point Abby actually latched onto a live baby. The first one born was out cruising and she opened her mouth and closed it on that baby about an inch or so down it's neck. I did not wait to see what would happen, I applied light pressure on the sides of her jaw, she opened her mouth and the live baby was free. Immediately pulled it and put it in a separate tub.

    4th out was a slug and she had to work extra long/hard to get it out. Something I have seen and noted before.

    Most babies were born by "blow a bubble with sack/fluid and baby flows into it", something I documented earlier this year but I also noticed today that often the head is in the first body parts to pass through the vent into the bubble.

    One baby (pic shown) was born with the sack burst, head and one body loop outside the vent. I reached in and gently pulled the baby out, it was fine.

    One more baby was born with sack burst but was breach. Most was outside mom but the head was still inside. Again I assisted by gently pulling the baby the rest of the way out. Again, this baby was fine. For both of the burst sack births Abby was having a harder time passing the baby out and without intervention I think could have resulted in a still birth. As I think back I cannot remember one single still birth baby being in it's egg sack, all were separated.
