Shelley

I spent an hour this afternoon super-gluing about 10 short lengths of wire over the crack in Shelley's shell. The wires were placed across the crack, and a small blob of sper-glue was applied to the ends, so now she has some heavy reinforcing across the crack without getting glue inside. Then I sealed it all over with neutral cure sillicone. Hopefully the crack will heal now that it's all held rigidly in place and waterproofed. She still needs at least 6 months R&R. She would have had it by now if she hadn't been let go in April.

Turtles really hate being on their back, I can tell you. Poor Shelley had to endure an hour of it.
