I like to use the tongs to drop the feeders into the enclosureFeeding tongs? For Reptiles or Tarantulas?
I have a few sets of tongs, but I do not tong feed any of my T's. I use T's for removing live food, not adding it.
For my tongs, I like plastic as they are less harsh if a T strikes at the tongs. My go to long tongs are bamboo. They are nice to use & handy for arboreal enclosures. My short (5 inch) tongs are ones brought off ebay. 2 pairs for just under £3. They are identical to the ones pet shops etc sell for £5 plus per pair.
