As is the case with many insects and invertebrates, stinging, biting and pinching are always a serious threat to the pet owner. Despite the fact that these creepy crawlies normally go about their day without any human interaction, feeding time is always an important event that brings pet and owner together. The Zoo Med Creatures Feeding Tongs were created to significantly reduce the risk of injury to both pet and owner during dinner time, when the chance of your pet inadvertently injuring you is at its highest. At six inches long, these tongs are perfect for feeding tarantulas, preying mantises, scorpions and many others. In addition, these tongs glow in the dark, making for an entertaining midnight snack!
