Made for the most humane handling of snakes. These snake tongs feature:
· triple rubber coated top jaw creates drag on top of the snake’s body for secure holding
· lower jaw is polished which creates a smooth surface, reducing snake’s ability of forward motion
· constructed of blue aircraft grade aluminium tubing featuring a concealed (non visible) stainless steel cable and spring
Test results have shown that the Gentle Giant’s 5 1/2 cm wide jaws eliminate stress in many situations, allowing the animals to be handled in a more relaxed state compared to other tongs currently available in the reptile industry. Some species that react radically to capture by regular tongs have proven to be less combative when restrained by the Gentle Giant Tongs™.
The 5 1/2 cm wide gentle grip disperses pressure over a greater surface area of the snake’s body, eliminating the possibility of direct pressure between individual ribs, and reducing the risk of musculo-skeletal injury. A wider, more gentle jaw allows faster gripping lessening the chance of injury or escape.
This is the collapsible version of this tong. It folds in half in a few seconds for reduced storage and transport size, and can be re-assembled almost as quickly.
