We believe our egg is at about stage 18,Late Neurula, based on our other pictures since this one failed to show visible markings to decide its age.
On day one the blastopore starts to shrink, the anterior end of knee has broadened into 2 divisions of the rudimentary brain, and Kupffer's vesicles begin to form. We are guessing our egg will hatch in 11 more days.
