Chompy is 96.1 cm curved carapace length and last nested on Casey Key in 2001. Her name was chosen by Venice Elementary School. She carries a time-depth recorder, a bioacoustic tag, and a red tide sampler that will be removed when she next returns to nest. A blood sample was taken for baseline blood health parameters.
