When I got up this mourning, the little cutie was GONE!!!!!!! :’( Please, help me find out what could have happened last night while I was sleeping!

If the sides of the pool were to tall for it to escape it may have fell victim to a predator during the night. Cats, racoons,possums,skunks,foxes all would make a tasty treat out of a small snapper. Or it could have climbed out and tried to walk back to its pond.
