Are these two still born baby skinks and two slugs (?) ?

Are the two blobs in the petri dish Fluffy's two dead babies what are referred to as slugs (undeveloped fetuses in sacks ) ??

.... can someone comfirm they are slugs.

I think the babies are dead, as I've seen no sign of breathing or movement all afternoon and they have not responded to any stimuli (like being touched flipped over etc) but still very limp so letting the sit for a while just in case - as I'd hate to accidentially bury or freeze a live baby lizard.

The boy's yoke sack had burst when I found them, the girl's is still in tact and seems to have shrunk this afternoon (??).

Aww. Looks like at least one slug there, the orange cheesy looking thing, similar to what I've seen with my Northerns. After giving birth my Cilla dropped a few like that a few days later.
