That's a fabulous video!
I just watched it twice to make sure i didn't miss anything. Very well put together with the tour of the habitat first slowly leading up to the appearance of the star character Twinkle himself who made me laugh with his comments. Lovely Halloween set up and perfect music.

You are really very very good at this Luna.

Ria, you just made my day with your kind words. I do try to tell a story with my videos and try to match the music to it.
I'm just happy that you could tell and see it in my videos.
I do love making them even if it takes a lot of my energy to do so.

Ok, so this is Twinkle's current set up

I would like to add more to it somehow, problem being, I can't go any higher than the house on the left otherwise he will be over the top as soon as I lift the lid. I did think I could maybe add more bedding at the back in between the wheel and his house on the right and bring the branch forward - you can only just see the top bits of it sticking out of the bedding.

In his run he loves the tunnels he has which are half submerged in the substrate, so I have tried doing the same in his cage but all he does is blocks them off and he doesn't burrow. So I am guessing he feels they threaten his environment and someone is going to come get him, so blocking them off is what he does.

To try and add a different level I added the wicker tunnel which you can see in the background, he does use this. I did hang a grass hide in a similar way, just a bit further back from his cork log at the front, but he was climbing on the outside of that too and there was potential for him to hurt himself with that one, so that got removed.

So, thoughts, ideas anyone?
Thanks.

I have the same platform as you but found that it works better cut in half. It's a great set up as it is but could maybe do with more things to run over and along like the 55cm long Trixie bendy ladders.
I'd cut the platform in half to free up more space and put a bendy bridge in front as a step or have a long bendy ladder leading up to it.

Thanks Ria.

It's a house under the sand bath but i can see why you thought it was the platform.

I have a long ladder I can use, I was just worried about using it as nowhere to hook it into place, but I am wondering if i could tie it into place with some sisal.

Ah right, of course.
The way they bend they don't always need hooking in. In Syrian Rory's cage one leads up to his house and lays flat on the roof. Another runs off a corner shelf behind his wheel and he's forever running along it.
Robo Gordon's here, i simply bent the ends downwards.
