What are the benefits of using an extendable snake hook?
Snake hooks are useful tools to handle everyday tasks, such as moving small snakes to different feeding stations or removing them for terrarium maintenance. The Premium Pocket Snake Hook can also be used to move terrarium decor without frightening reptiles. It has a pocket-sized design with an extended length that is lightweight and strong making it highly suitable for field herping as well as easy transport. Along with safely guiding snakes, this reliable snake hook can be used to sift through debris or substrate.
Direct body contact (with your hands) may be ill-advised with some snake species. By using a Swell Reptiles snake pocket hook, you can direct their head and body away from you and other people who might otherwise strike, and treat them with the care and respect they deserve while handling them.
How to safely handle small snakes?
When using a robust collapsible hook, slowly and carefully slide the hook end beneath the snake to avoid hurting it and gently lift up from its middle. It can also be used to gain access to the snake's habitat first: letting the snake know that there are no foods entering the vivarium, thus avoiding attacks.
