    We have one that hatched last night. He has one leg that he cannot seem to bend. The knee doesn't seem to work, but bends easily & apparently painlessly when I bend it for him. He pulls himself along with the good leg & this one drags along behind.
    Any advice is greatly appreciated! He appears healthy in all other ways.
