It's a little bumpy, but good overall. Not done shedding and those edge pieces are usually the last to come off. Does Marshall have any barriers around the basking platform?

So those flakes on shell will fall off? And not yet I'm gonna form a piece of plexy glass to the top so it can't crawl out but its been up there for awhile and it never attempts to get out. I know I need one, because i would hate to see her fall.

It should come off on it's own. Could you put up something temporary?

That's good to know and honestly I don't I couldn't get the cardboard to stay and it looked really tacky.
Thank you grandma.

You really should put something around the basking spot. Bobo had NEVER attempted to climb out... for about a year... until I got home from work one day and found her missing from the tank (about three years ago). Finally found her tucked between a wall and a box, she seemed ok, but the fall was about a meter (three feet) high and she actually fell twice - from the tank on the drawer and then on the carpeted floor. So please be careful.
