yes mine does. he has room to turn around also. I have read reviews of them crawling out of the top if they're big enough, so I put a rock on top just in case he tried.

My 12+ inch bearded dragon fits.............but turtles are much wider and I think you would need a wider enterance. I used to have some sliders and they lived in my pond because they got so big. I know my sliders wouldn't fit, so I am guessing if yours is full grown..........it may not. You might actually have to go to PETCO and take physical measurements to be sure.

answer 2
I believe that is the size of mine. ( I inherited it from a friend) it fits fine and there is plenty of open space to feed them. It should be fine as long as you follow the recomended water height so they don't try to scale the side of the tank. I keep my water level about 4 inches from the top, enough so ,the bottom of the ramp is under water.

Sadly, no. It is too small. It's also not good for guinea pigs backs to be going up and down steep ramps. I would stay clear of these for them!
