It’s actually a series of tubs or “ponds” next to each other. So there is a Lifepond with gently sloping sides but next to it is a deep pond. The deep pond is a rectangular tub about 60 cm deep. That is raised, but if an animal got into the Lifepond they could conceivably cross over into the deeper pond.

I like the idea of your “beach area” so I think I will incorporate that into the deeper pond.

Just thinking of the worst case scenario, but does anyone know how high a hoglet can pull themselves up?
