Snake Hooks & Tongs

snake tongs

Snake tongs are humane and effective reptile handling tools that can be used as an extension to your arm for just about anything. These snake tongs are state of the art, light weight, strong, and durable tools designed to give maximum holding pressure with minimal risk to you and the viper. 

The handle grip commands a steel cable, which activates the jaws. This provides the handler with a precise feel of pressure being applied to the snake or other reptile.

Snakes scare us— most of us, anyway. This fact is true for horses and cattle, too. They will spook at the sight of a snake, and rightly so. In the wild, a grazing animal could meet an untimely death if the snake beneath its hooves is poisonous. When a snake is in our yard, barn, pasture, or home, we usually just want to get rid of it as fast as possible so it won't be a threat to humans, pets, or farm animals.

There are a number of ways to safely catch a snake. The first thing, though, is to identify the species. A non-venomous snake will be a lot less challenging to remove than a venomous snake. Many experts can pick up a snake behind the head without fear of being bitten, however, a novice snake handler should assume that touching the snake means it is very possible for a bite to occur. If you think the snake is venomous, or simply don’t know one way or the other, you are taking a chance. Every year, hundreds of people are injured because they try to catch a snake on their own, so it may be in your best interest to call a professional wildlife expert. If that's not possible, special instruments such as snake tongs make handling snakes easier and safer.

Snake tongs can be used for smaller snakes, a snake hook for bulkier snakes, and you'll need a strike-proof snake sack to hold the snakes in. Thick welder's gloves can protect against the small teeth of non-venomous snakes, but NOT against the large fangs of pit vipers like rattlesnakes, copperheads, or cottonmouth. Wearing snake boots or snake gaiters is also wise.
