Give your favorite reptile a place to dry off and bask with the Turtle Dock from Zoo Med. This unique floating dock has a self-leveling feature that automatically adjusts to the water height. It also has a submerged ramp so your turtle can easily walk up to a dry basking area for maximum exposure to heat and UVB lamps. Made in the USA, Zoo Med Turtle Dock can be used with other aquatic animals as well.
Floating dock provides access to a dry, warm area for your pet.
Self-leveling feature automatically adjusts to the water height.
Submerged ramp allows access to dry basking area.
Attaches to tank with four suction cups and bracket.
This product is just the right size for a small turtle. The anchoring system also works very well. The problem is that the surface is too slick for the turtle to get traction to climb up the ramp. The surface seems like it should have some type of coating to make it "not so smooth". Mine came with what looked like the start of some type of coating. I wonder if a step was missed in the manufacturing process. The turtle needs a rougher surface to be able to climb out of the water. Anyway, just be aware that you might need to craft some way to let the turtle get traction on this turtle dock.

So I ordered a turtle dock it says it comes with the bracket but when it came in it only had the suction cups and the dock but no bracket. I contacted someone about the issue and was sent another one free of charge but yet again it’s missing the bracket. Besides the missing bracket everything else has been fine I got fast shipping and the person who responded to my email was very kind and helpful but ended up with another one with the same issue

Just received my product, shipping was really fast and was looking forward to setting it up for my turtle HOWEVER MY PRODUCT DID NOT COME WITH ANY SUCTION CUPS ( the main reason I chose this platform was because of the suction cups). If suction cups aren't included then they should advertise NOT INCLUDED!
tricky for turtle
on Nov 15, 2020
my turtle has a hard time getting on it because it moves around too much. i’m going to try putting some rocks under it so it is easier for him. wish it was more stable tho
Turtles love it

Took them about 4 days before they would go on top of it. Loved it underneath for a hiding place. Suction good to a clean glass side and then holds well. After the 4th day they are up the slow grade ramp and live sunning on it. They even come up over the sides now.
Defective suction cups

Only 2 of the suction cups actually work, 2 were defective so my turtle won't even get on it cuz it moves too much
Bad suction cups
on Jul 18, 2020
The rock floats but I had to go buy more suction cups cuz the ones that came with this were flattened out completely. You could tell they werent going to stick soon as you take it out of the box. Tried to put them in boiling water to get original shape and it didnt work.

This shipped very fast (I was surprised!) and works really well. The material was a good quality styrofoam, which I didn’t expect. The only bad thing is the color. I was expecting a camouflage brown-green type of color, however, mine is black with some streaks of bright green. Not the best looking, which is why i took off one star, but other than that, I am very pleased!
Turtleman loves it!

My turtle loves this platform. I put his treats on there for him and he basks there daily. It supports him well and is easy to remove for cleaning.
waste of money

Don’t buy this!I bought one before I did enough research,and regret it.Your turtle will grow out of it pretty quick, and it will easily start to sink and get difficult for your turtle to use.It also prevents you from using all the space in your tank without it allowing your turtle to jump out.look up a diy ABOVE TANK basking are.they are waaaay better.cheaper.more durable.And easier to customize!I hope I saved someone some struggle and wast of money you’d get by buying this!
