Feeding Tongs - Exo Terra

High quality stainless steel feeding tongs

Feeding Tongs - Exo Terra
Crafted from high-quality stainless steel, Exo Terra Tongs are an excellent tool for feeding live insects to reptiles and amphibians. The long, ergonomic pincers make feeding easy and provide enough distance to prevent stress in the feeding animal, while the tips have been "soft-coated" to prevent mouth injury and to provide a firm grip on live feeder insects.

Gecko Egg Incubation Trays

Maximize space in your incubator using these incubation trays

Gecko Egg Incubation Trays
Use Gecko Incubation Trays in any incubator to sort & organize eggs. Ideal for Leopard Geckos, Gargoyle Geckos, Crested Geckos, and any other species with similar sized eggs. Each tray fits in 12oz Fabri-Kal Alur cups, which can be partially filled with any moist incubation medium (beneath the tray) to ensure a perfect humidity level. The 12oz containers will usually prevent hatchlings from crossing over on to the other eggs (ideal when keeping different morphs per container). These can also be stacked for storage, or to be kept in larger incubation containers. Vermiculite, Repashy Superhatch, hatchrite, or Water Polymer Crystals work great for incubation media when using these.

The long length covers your hands & forearms make handling large, or clawed reptiles much easier. Heavier duty than the typical gray "welding style" gloves.
