Morning Shift

When my team got to school I fed Rocky 5-10 Reptomin. Every time I fed him, he would stick his head up. Rocky always ate the Reptomin whole. He surprised me really good because he usually eats the Reptomin piece by piece. Rocky bit fake Rocky's foot. (Fake Rocky is our stone turtle statue.) He went to the bathroom for the first time on our shift.

Late Morning Shift

Rocky looked bigger than usual when I got in school. He has a longer tail now. He gobbled up the Reptomin like a monster. Rocky doesn't eat a lot of of blood worms now. I fed Rocky 15 Reptomin and one cube of dried worms.
Afternoon Shift (note to self- add Reptomin Outside Tank Video here)

Reptomin is Rocky's favorite food. Watch our video of Rocky trying to bite the Reptomin when it is outside of the tank. Rocky is not hungry today; he only ate 2 Reptomin. He didn't chomp at them very fast like he usually does. Then he fell asleep somehow. Today, I noticed that he loves to stick his head up, he does it all day. He bit fake Rocky's head. It was pretty cool. In the late afternoon I fed rocky about 15 or 20 Reptomin rocky must really like to stick his head up. He was doing it like every second.

Late Afternoon Shift

Rocky gobbled up his Reptomin like ... Frankenstein it was almost scary!!! But then it would pop out. Sometimes he keeps it in his mouth so it looks like a bone. Then Rocky snaps at it again like a crab and it disappeared.
