    We all know that avics and former avics need an elevated waterdish because many times they won't go to the ground to drink.

    I don't seriously expect my C versicolor Charles to actually need this, but I want to see if I can catch him using it.

    It'll make a good new years day card!!

    I'm not sure if anyone had tried it before.

    I siliconed the lid of a vial to the side and it fits a bottle top perfectly. I don't have this in my versi enclosures yet but when they get rehoused I'm going to try mimic this setup.

    The picture is of 1 of my avicularia purpurea I've seen both of them use the dishes. Picture was to show someone that slings aren't going to drown lol

    Yep, that's exactly what they like.

    I'd be surprised if he uses it, but it'll be a good New year's Eve car card if it works.
