The vinyl is about 0.3/0.4mm, and is thicker than the kitchen roll.
Anyone have any ideas?

Although I may switch it back to kitchen roll as she can't seem to get her grip on the flooring even though its quite rough
Where's the stat probe now?
I keep my reptiles in vivaria, heated with ceramics. If you need set-up help, and can't find the answer here;
