    It sounds as though it is shrink wrapped. Did it start to zip and then get stuck?

    Yes I just wet a napkin and wiped it all around the membrane and it seems to be doing better but of course I'm not an experienced member so any help would be appreciated...a lot

    Do you have a picture? If it started to zip it's likely ready to come out. You can try finishing the zip for it, but stop if you see any blood.

    He just got out of the egg :D but wherever the poor thing moves it drags the egg shell with it. I think the cord might be still attached :(

    You can very carefully detach it from him if he's still dragging it around :) So glad to hear he made it out!

    I think one of the others pushed her into the water bowl and she drowned:(
