Ms. Rasbury's 8th period class
Mishell is 105.0 cm curved carapace length. She has not been tagged previously so we will be guessing where she heads on the post-nesting migration. Mishell's carapace was amazingly bio-luminescent from dinoflagellates in the water. Mishell was named by Riverview High School's Marine Science Club. Thanks again to the Riverview students for helping to paint all the yellow signage stakes that are used to mark the nests.
