Feeding Tool Innovations From Exo Terra
MANSFIELD, Mass. – (For Immediate Release) — Feeding reptiles and amphibians by hand can be a challenge even for experts – grub worms can bite bare skin and heat-sensitive snakes may become startled when warm extremities move close. Exo Terra is offering a new line of feeding tools with thoughtfully designed features that make feeding time safer, simpler, and less stressful for reptiles and their handlers.
Made from high quality stainless steel for live feeding reptiles and amphibians, the Exo Terra Tongs Feeding Tool offers excellent durability. These handy tongs provide an ergonomic design for handler comfort and a proper length to keep pets at ease. The tips are “soft-coated” to prevent mouth injury and to provide a firm grip on feeder insects.
The Exo Terra Collapsible Snake Hook is designed with features that make handling and feeding hatchling to medium sized snakes safer and more comfortable. The metal construction is less stressful for snakes with heat sensing abilities than being picked up by hand. When the snake hook is fully extended, the shaft secures in place to prevent rotation while lifting or holding the snake.
The new snake hook is also a handy tool for moving décor around a terrarium without startling reptiles. It includes a rounded end to prevent injuries to pets. With pocket-sizing and strong, lightweight construction, it makes a great tool for travel and field herping. It also includes a built-in wristband to prevent accidental dropping and loss.
For a sustainable and eco-friendly alternative to standard feeding tools, Exo Terra offers a Bamboo Tweezers Feeding Tool. Bamboo grows far faster than other wood and can be harvested with the root system left intact – making it a naturally sustainable resource. It also requires a minimum of pesticides, fertilizers and space, making it a more environmentally friendly option to grow.
The flexible nature of bamboo prevents injuries to reptiles and feeder insects – both live and canned. Feeding pets with a tool made from natural material also helps reduce stress. The lightweight, flexible design offers superior comfort for handlers.
The new Exo Terra feeding tools from the Rolf C. Hagen Corp. offer quality construction and insightful features from a trusted name. Stainless Steel Feeding Tongs have an MSRP of $11.99. The new Snake Hook extends from 25.5 cm – 60 cm (10in – 24in) and is offered at an MSRP of $14.99. Bamboo Feeding Tweezers are available at an MSRP of $7.99.
