Welcome to The Snapper Report! This week’s report is brought to you by Abby Jensen. Snapper’s weigh in for 4/25/2023 was 285.1 grams. Over the past week, Snapper has grown 18.7 grams. Snappers’ tank is well kept, but she is almost too big for it. She gets cared for every day by Mrs. Gonsoir. The students love her and see her every day. Snapper enjoys her daily meals of Repto sticks. She doesn’t really like her ham anymore. She likes to be very active and with her growing size, she is almost ready for the wild. Snapper’s species is a snapping turtle. Turtles don’t have ears, but they have thin flaps of skin covering internal ear bones, which receive vibrations and low-frequency sounds. Our Chemistry class is learning about states of matter this week.
