My map turtle had no problem getting up the ramp and she is quite large. This gives her more room to swim which she loves.
Definitely read the dimensions instead of going off pictures. I’m very satisfied with my purchase. Planning on getting a bigger tank soon. This item will fit in it much better than the little tank I have now. Difficult to assemble. Pieces didn’t seem to want to go together. Managed to push them in though
My turtle absolutely loves her topper She doesn’t have any issues climbing up in as long as the water level is kinda high!
I have 3 red eared aquatic turtles and the smallest one had no issues climbing in to sun bathe, but my other 2 larger turtles had some issues. So I had to adjust the platform and put ducktape on the plank for grip. They love it. It is large enough for both my 9 inch long turtles & my 5.5 inch long turtle to bask together.
I got this after I realized all the stair rocks and rocks that stick to the glass and float couldn’t do much for my turtle anymore I decided I needed a better solution for times he wasn’t in the water. This was the best decision I made but I think the only thing to watch out for is you have to fill your tank practically to the top with water and as well as some filters can only go so high, my filter just makes it to the top of the water for filtering, and I do worry about my turtle trying to climb out his tank from the open water so I had to make a makeshift lid situation because he’s hopped out the tank before and had pushed off any makeshift lid that was too light. Also feel the water just barely hits the ladder/steps but my turtle seemed to struggle with at first but he seems to have gotten the hang of it but when he goes to go back in the water it’s almost like a slide that he throws himself on, though he doesn’t get hurt or anything just you hear when he climbs in and slides out to the water. Other than the small issues, I think it’s an amazing product and definitely opens your tank to have more swim space for your turtle, while providing a perfect space for them out of water!
