There were 2 females that tightened up to the point where they looked dried up when we picked them up. We assume that they were stressed so we immediately put them down. But it’s an interesting behavior I hadn’t seen before.

So, this looks like an egg yolk jelly... however it is larger than any I’ve seen and could maybe be something else? We weren’t sure!
