Hello Paul,
We purchased a "Red Phased" Dusty hog from Richard Evans, (West Texas Reptiles), early last summer. Just a baby, and it took a while to figure out how to get this guy to eat! Finally, after researching, then contacting Richard Evans, We tried feeding him in a seperate container, (Rubber Maid), thawed the pinkies,(2), then put them in a "baggie", placed in a cup of hot water for 10 min., and then take them out, and run them under hot
tap water briefley , then drop them into the container, still wet, then put the hoggie in with them, and place the container in an area with the light off, or semi dark...HE PIGS OUT! This has worked out great for us at every feeding!
"Dusty Rhodes", our hoggie, is a real sweetie, glad we got him, wouldn't trade him for anything!!!
Hope this helps you out...

P.S. Be sure you ventilate your container...(drill holes in lid)
