What exactly are we looking at?
It's made of bamboo.... On a long enough time scale, this will happen to every pair.
You can now use them as chopsticks. Enjoy some Japanese food with them.
They call them super worms for a reason...
Honestly you could have my pair but I'm in PA. My critters won't take food from them.
But seriously, how did that happen?
You can pretty much fix anything with these three items:
If you put these in your bug out bag, you will survive the zombie apocalypse for sure
Honestly though, wood glue, a clamp and a 24 hr wait would be the proper fix
It’s just separated. Those things are made with two sides attached to a wedge-shaped spreader. Unfortunately, that spreader becomes a fulcrum for the lever action you create every time you squeeze the tongs. So after a while, if the adhesive is not strong enough, it gives out.
After you fix it, you can also wrap the end very tightly with string or wire. That should be a more permanent solution for you.
This is why I would rather buy steel feeder tongs/tongs than buy the wood zoomed brand one (no offense). I don't find those essential and they get out of shape in a matter of time. I'd rather buy something of steel/metal for better and longer convenience use.
Lol I literally thought that
Your tarantula really wanted that roach, huh.
How does this even get posted.....
Lol I wish, the only tarantula I have that eats in front of me is my brachypelma albopolosum sling (I can’t spell)
I honestly have no idea how it happened
Your first mistake was buying something other than metal honestly. Had the same pair almost ten years now.
We got the bamboo ones also at one point... Not only were they incapable of holding Dubia, but then they broke. Now we have at least two pair of metal tongs in the house at all times.
I have the exact same pair that hasn't given up on me yet. I bought it because at the time it was the cheapest one there and I didn't want to spend too much. Sometimes a mealworm will go flying across the room when the tongs snap shut but other than that they seem somewhat okay for the time being, though when I get a bit more money I'd like to try and get a bigger pair of metal tongs and a small tweezer tong too so I can do maintence on my vials without worrying I'll crush the poor things.
I use metal tongs for tarantulas, but I have a lot of bamboo tongs for cooking and well, this happens sometimes.
Yeah and I get that, I just personally like bamboo better, even though with tarantulas the material of the tongs probably can’t harm them
Functionality over looks imo.
