Help and advice on shopping for: Reptile Handling Equipment
Handle your reptiles safely
Handling your reptile is very important, and so having the right kind of handling equipment for your reptile and its personality is essential. Our range of reptile handling equipment includes products from leading reptile brands such as Komodo as well as our own high-quality products.
What is reptile handling equipment?
Reptile handling equipment is essentially all the tools needed to move and handle reptiles, amphibians and invertebrates safely. In some cases, especially during feeding, animals can become overeager and defensive, accidentally injuring themselves or their owners. The only way to ensure their safety and yours is with the right equipment.
Why should I buy reptile handling equipment?
The right reptile handling equipment protects both you and your pet from harm. A lot of reptile handling equipment will also help with regular reptile husbandry tasks, such as cleaning and feeding. Most reptile equipment can be reused from pet to pet, making them a great investment for any reptile keepers.
What are the main types of reptile handling equipment?
Our reptile handling equipment range is divided into five areas; reptile tongs, snake hooks, protective gloves, reptile claw clippers and reptile sexing probes. Reptile tongs are grabbing tongs used to hold food for your reptile. Snake hooks are blunt hooks of different sizes used to handle and move snakes. Protective gloves are easy to clean, toughened gloves worn by reptile keepers to protect both themselves and their animals. Reptile claw clippers are used to keep reptile’s claws short as they won’t be worn down as they would be in the wild. Reptile sexing probes are metal probes used to determine the gender of snakes.
What should I look for?
When buying reptile handling equipment, the key is to thoroughly research what your specific reptile, amphibian or invertebrate needs. What is right for a Leopard gecko won't be right for a Bearded dragon. Look at other handlers and reptile keepers with the same species and the tools they use. The comfort and safety of your pet is the most important thing so you may find that you need to try a few different tools before settling on the right one.
