Snake Handling Equipment

Pillstrom Snake Tongs

The late Dr. Larry Pillstrom invented, perfected and patented the Pillstrom snake tongs which has been around since 1954. These tongs have been copied by many, some with minor changes by using a cable instead of a rod to activate the jaws. When handling large venomous snakes like cobras or mambas, the rod mechanism is preferred as it has a more positive feel and is more reliable. African Reptiles and Venom imports and supplies these tongs here in Africa.

Snake Hooks

Snake hooks are made from golf clubs with stainless steel hooks. These tools are indispensable in any snake collection or as a tool to remove snakes from around your house or lodge.
