Recommended for experienced handlers. Our standard 40 Snake Hook is a very gentle tool for restraint and lifting of most snakes (if youre not skilled with Snake Hooks, we generally recommend our Snake Tongs). The collapsible version is ideal for compact storage or travel. Our 2 wide by 4 long Heavy-duty Hook is designed for use on large, heavy-bodied snakes such as constrictors or pythons.
