thanks for the info!
I am using small pieces of slate to create a "natural" cave for them to hide in. Do you think that is OK? The base is wide so its very stable.
:the cork is great.....if you want the shoreline effect just tilt it at an angle to the waeter-air interface. (that is if you buy flat sheet of it)
:you might also get a cork half log and sew it(with say fishing line (careful not to allow any loose pices for entanglements) or hooks to a cork flat and you can make a ramp up to higher, fully dry place.
:I'd avoid slate, it can scratch plastrons and you don't want shell rot of the plastron as it is hard to treat and takes long to heal.
:In the wild i have rarely seen turtles basking on any kind of rock unless there was nothing else available.
