Messed up R. Imitator embryo
#1
So, I pulled these eggs on 6.01. I started taking pictures on Day 3 of the decomposing egg (gross, but I like documenting many things LOL).
Anyhow, Everything looked FINE with the one embryo until now. I took a picture this morning, and I guess I can see SOMETHING was going wrong with development, but something is NOT right here.
Here's the picture from 6.5 and this morning first-

Any idea what is going on? I'm sure that this guy isn't going to make it. It wiggles around fine, but it's really screwed up!

It seems like the "growth" is breaking off.

All the stuff is now separated from the embryo. This morning the egg was cloudy, now all the particles are looking solid. Weird. I guess no one else has ever seen this?

The tad hatched on the 12th. I just euthanized it. Part of it's internal organs were coming out it's backside, and you can clearly see an air bubble in it's body cavity.
