    • Triple rubber coated top jaw creates drag on top of the snake’s body for secure holding.
    • Lower jaw is polished which creates a smooth surface, reducing snake’s ability of forward motion.
    • Constructed of blue aircraft grade aluminum tubing featuring a concealed (non visible) stainless steel cable and spring.

    Test results have shown that the Gentle Giant’s 2 ¼ inch wide jaws eliminate stress in many situations, allowing the animals to be handled in a more relaxed state compared to other tongs currently available in the reptile industry. Some species that react radically to capture by regular tongs have proven to be less combative when restrained by the Gentle Giant Tongs™.

    Extra Wide Jaws The 2 ¼ inch wide gentle grip disperses pressure over a greater surface area of the snake’s body, eliminating the possibility of direct pressure between individual ribs, and reducing the risk of musculoskeletal injury. A wider, more gentle jaw allows faster gripping which is a great advantage when handling or capturing species of water snakes and tree dwelling snakes which are notoriously fast and difficult to restrain, lessening the chance of injury or escape.

    The Gentle Giant Collapsible has the highest quality collapsible components available. Not only was Midwest the first to design and market the only collapsible tong available, but has now upgraded to a more user-friendly Higher Quality Precision tool that will amaze you in its appearance and performance. This tong comes standard with the large super tong option using heavier gauge aluminum tubing with interior wall thickness of .110 inch.

    The new “Quick Release Positive Lock System” is the component that makes this tool second to NONE.

    Standard size is 40″.
