Abstract

We describe here a device that allows a large number of venomous snakes to be transported and manipulated while minimizing risk to the snakes and investigators. We developed a need for such a device in the course of our investigations of the ecology of the cottonmouth (Agkistrodon pisciverous). Our device expands on the use of clear tubes for capture or restraint of venomous snakes (Fowler 1995: Murphy 1971).
