About this product

This is the Net Head for the Herpetology Net. A handle is available to fit this head and the entire net can also be purchased as a complete set.

The net head is 330mm wide with a shallow and flat bottomed mesh bag. As a result the net is readily moved through the water and folds only a little over netted animals. It provides a broad catching basked that can be easily slid at distance under or into vegetation before animals get a chance to move away. As plants are reached and knocked into, the animals tend to move down into it.

The net bag does not hang down far and snag so easily in bramble, branches or debris on the bottom of ponds. Being light and quick to manoeuvre and having a very large head surface area, it is extremely effective at catching at distance. There is less ‘wave’ disturbance compared to other nets and less capture of debris and mud too. To clean the net, it can be reversed in seconds by turning over while extended, rather than being brought in for cleaning out and rinsing.
