Kenyan Top Bar Hive comb breakage

Inspected the Kenyan Top Bar Hive, and I was surprised to pull up this top bar, deep in the brood nest, and there was very little comb on it! When I looked down, the “fallen” piece had been anchored in place by the workers. I haven’t been this far into the hive for quite a while, so I don’t think I broke it. Looking forward to a different KTBH in the spring, wider and more shallow.

Hey, where's the big sheet of comb that should be here?
