The lid is made from 3/16" polystyrene sheet,
lexan, homemade aluminum L-brackets, aluminum rivets and a gate handle. The rim fits
tightly on the inside of the can.
It allows me to see where the snake is before opening the can.
It also doubles as a shield while opening or closing.
Note: I don't normally use this can for rubber black racers,
but they sit still for pictures.
A selection of snake hooks.
A set of plastic tubes for restraining venomous snakes.
Long hemostats for feeding venomous snakes.
Long tweezers for feeding small nonvenomous snakes.
Two compression bandages in case of an elapid bite.
A sign to be hung on the outside doorknob in the event of a bite where the snake then escapes in the room and connot be easily retrieved before leaving for the hospital.
