On my ramps I just stapled sandpaper to the ramps. Excellent traction, and also good for the nails. Just replace when it wears away. Just a thought.Thank you! I do need to modify the upper ramp. He had trouble climbing up because it's a bit too slick with the wood sealant, even with the sand in it. So I'll probably glue some rubber strips to it or something.The temps are rising from the low 80s at the moment. I think it's taking a bit of time for the substrate to fully warm up. Otherwise, he's a bit nervous but is tromping around and exploring. He already found some hiding spots he likes.
Here are a few more shots of the two basking areas, equipment, and a super secret undercover tortoise.

Now here's the devious side of my mind. I considered building a ramp(indoors)to nowhere, well to the wall, Out of slate and just on the verge of being to steep for my adults to climb. Then put s strawberry at the top. I was going to name it "the clawinator". Exercise and nail(claw) trimmer in one. My missis said it was too cruel.
