Many herpetologists consider tubing to be the safest method of working closely with snakes during minor veterinary work or probing to sex them. Tubes are utilized by slipping one end over the head and body of a snake until about half of the snake is inside the tube. The body is then grasped at the point where it exits the tube. One hand should hold the body of the snake and the tube simultaneously! This assures that the snake cannot back out of the tube.
**Always remember to use a tube that is small enough so that the snake cannot turn around in it.**
