Oh my goodness, that is absolutely amazing! It must have taken a lot of thought and effort, but it certainly looks like Groot is enjoying it, and he will definitely get loads of exercise! Those ramps are steep, but my tortoises can climb walls that are almost vertical (people don't realise what good climbers they are), so well done for getting so much space for him into a small area.
If he is a bit reluctant to climb then you could try tempting him by putting food up on the next level --= that is how I got mine interested in climbing their ramp and they go up and down it all the time now, just in case there is a little treat waiting for them up there.

Thanks so much for updating us and for all the photos. I think this table will be a talking point and an inspiration to lots of people!

Thank you Nina, he has no problem going up them but from the third to top floor it is the longest. He belly slides down the other three which he kept doing with his logs and ramps in his old table. He drops off stuff all the time on purpose so i really didnt think it would be an issue lol.
He went in it Sat evening and on Sunday, everytime i helped him down it he went straight back up!! :roll: so i decided to leave him up there n when i heard scratching i ran to look n he was already on the second floor.
The bottom right is deep soil so he can dig n hide n the first and top have no heat source so he has cool spots.
It took about a month to build as i kept changing the design with the joiner but we got there in the end lol
It is 57” high, 47” wide and 26” deep top and bottom are full size and two middle are split so all in all there are 3 full size levels with 3 small ramps and one long one. I might add his ceramic bulb to the bottom level for winter but i added sides on the whole thing to keep the heat in as he is near the back door so only the front is open
