I dont think they have unbilical cords. I could be wrong. But those connect mother to child. I'm probably just stupid and don't know.
But I'm sure he'll be fine if he is still alive and eating.

How old is he now?

It's not uncommon for people to lose one or two babies in general from a breeding from what I've read.

I wouldnt worry. Could be just a coincidence.

Hello,

They have yolk sacs at their navel, but they don't have, technically speaking, an umbilical cord. The yolk sac is normally absorbed by them through their navel & as soon as it is absorbed, the navel area just closes up & seals up.
Can you post a picture of that?

That's what I thought, and wanted to say, I just didn't want to sound like an ***** if I were wrong. haha.




Anyways, if there is any sort of "dent" in him it was probably bumped and damage while he was developing.

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
