“As a professional herpetologist who spends a great deal of time handling many captive herps (including venomous) as well as spending considerable time in field research studying herps, I have come to rely on the quality of your various products. Whether I am pulling out my probes for sexing snakes in the field (and at our wildlife center), using your gentle giant tongs to move hard to hook venomous snakes, having a special hook custom made, using your STURDY field hooks for flipping tin and other objects looking for herps, or taking out your field hat to protect my skin from the sun while doing my field research, I have to say that your products are FAR superior than anything else on the market. It is nice to know that you take the needs of professional herpetologists like myself into designing quality products that perform at a very high level of quality AND put your customer first and foremost. Keep up the great work! Thanks!”
