I stumbled across a few of these on ebay made by EXO-TERRA.

"The Vivicator from Exo Terra is a remote controlled vibrating feeding dish and is the perfect alternative to feeding life insects to your reptiles or amphibians. The high frequency vibrations simulate movement and the motion of live insects when the food is placed on the rubber feeding platform. Since insectivorous reptiles and amphibians are triggered by motion, they will be immediately attracted to the moving items (canned insects, freeze dried insects or pellets). The Vivicator is remote controlled, so the device can be turned on without causing stress to the terrarium animals. After pressing the button on the remote control, the Vivicator will run for about 15 seconds and can be repeated until all items are eaten. The feeding platform is easy to clean and can be removed from the stone during cleaning."

Sounds quite interesting considering I have to wiggle and jiggle food in front of Dex until madame even looks at it twice. including salad.

Thoughts anyone?

I think it looks interesting. I've seen the vibrating water dishes, since a lot of reptiles are only attracting to moving water.

I used to have one for my first beardie and tossed it. The biggest rip off. Why? because it is very loud and vibrates the food everywhere. Once I had raining juvie pellets and Zoey ran like crazy from it. I tried canned crickets also, unless your beardie likes loud noises and canned crickets raining everywhere but the dish. :lol: Funny thing, I would turn it off and he would eat out of it. Lasted a few weeks when I tossed it.

We have one, and Waffle used to like it when he was little. Ours didnt seem that noisy (other than the fake cricket noises it makes). It did bounce around the stuff, but if we only put a little at a time in it, Waffle would study it and move his head around with it and eat the stuff.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
