    5Excellent feeder tongs for small pet reptiles!
    By Candid Reviewer
    These Zoo Med Stainless Steel Feeding Tongs, 10 inch are the perfect size for feeding small pet reptiles like my bearded dragon. Held properly, they extend your reach by about 6-7", allowing you to maintain a safe distance from the mouth of your pet (if he/she is an "overeager" eater who tends to bite fingers) and reducing the intimidation factor for the pet as well (if he/she is a hatchling that isn't used to your hands yet and tends to shy away from your reach). Likewise, these tongs take the "ew" factor out of grabbing slimy/skittery creepy-crawly bugs if you don't like the feeling of touching feeder insects with your hands.

    My bearded dragon never bites and I'm not shy about handling insects. In my case, I bought them just because it makes it easier to reach into the corners of my dragon's enclosure to pick up stray pieces of mustard greens, dead insects, or whatever. It's a lot easier than trying to reach all the way in with my arm which tends to scare my dragon, who is still acclimating to his new home/owner.

    If you're looking for well made, handy feeder tongs, I highly recommend these.

    5Save Your Fingers, Get These Tweezers!
    By Lasciel's Toy
    Picture, if you can, a giant pair of tweezers. That's what your getting, a 10" pair of tweezer, the length of which, allows a higher control of how much pressure you use and saves your skin from beaks, teeth and fangs. I use these to feed super worms to my Eastern Box Turtles. Turtles and tortoises don't have the best accuracy when biting because much like the monsters in Pitch Black, they can't see whats right in front of their nose. I like my fingers, i hurt them enough as it is, I don't need chunks bitten out by accident. These have saved them, while also allowing me to quickly pick up the worms, should they fall and try to dig in. I used to just consider them lost if they got to that point. So not only is it helping, it's saving me some money.

    4One of my frogs loves it.
    By Ivy N. Thomson
    My fat frog loves eating from these tongs, my skinny one doesn't. This isn't surprising. the fat one is brave, the skinny one won't eat til I'm not looking. My complaint with the tongs is there is no soft rubber tip. But then again it doesn't say there is one. They are strong, long durable. Just well made tongs. And hey, one of my frogs likes it! He does go after the tongs so crazily (I think the store must have fed him with tongs, cause he lunges at THE TONGS - even without a bug) I'm worried he'll injure himself.
