 Mealworm hatching issues!?!?!???

Ok, so I’ve recently started breeding mealworms, not super worms, but regular, normal mealworms. I have anoles, and mine GO CRAZY for them, literally. (My male started jumping up and down when I put in about 7-8 mealworms (6 lizards total) in "his" terrarium.
My question is- I just had my first pupa hatch today (yay! Finally!) but I noticed that its missing art of its first left leg, and it’s taken a couple hours, and still isn’t walking yet. The good thing is, I have more mealworms ready to pupate in about 3-4 days. But why was he having issues?
