DIY turtle dock

EDIT: click here for a step-by-step guide

Here’s a couple of pics of the finished product, “installed” on the aquarium.
I made a couple of holes on the base before putting the plastic-grass on it so if the turtle brings a lot of water it’ll drain easily.

I tried putting the turtle on it but she ran back in the water right away. After a few minutes, half hour maybe, she started to lean against the ramp but didn’t climb up.

I then tried to make her climb by putting food on the edge of the platform. I know they have to eat in the water but it kind of worked.
