Added this for my Russian tortoise that loves to climb. Put this in his basking area and he LOVES it. He climbs up and down all day, and sometimes just lays on top to bask. It fit a little wonky in the corner, so I added lots of substrate to fill in the gaps and the bottom. Also buried it a bit into the substrate, so it wouldn’t be too high/tall.
I got this for my 3-year-old ball python hoping it would be bigger than his current hide, but it ended up being too small. He's 1200g and 40" long for reference. There wasn't anything wrong with it and I'm sure it would be great for a smaller snake or lizard.
THE TURTLES WILL NOT GO NEAR IT. THEY STAY FAR AWAY FROM IT LIKE IT DISEASED. I THINK ITS THE MATERIAL. BECAUSE THEY HAD WOOD ONES WHEN THEY LITTLE ON STAYED ON THEM ALL TIME. IT'S A SHAME IT DID NOT COME WITH A WARRANTY.
The "Kids" (Donatello, Black and Little -aka turtles) love it. It is weighted so they can't move it. Fits perfectly in the 55gal tank. The deck is quite roomy. They go for it as soon as I turn on the lamp. They actually fight over who gets to bask the longest (Donatello usually wins). So now I have to order another one so they all can get some "sun" time. I have it propped up on large river rocks so that they can still climb.
