The Grabber: the Ultimate Terrarium Tool?


This unceremonious photo depicts one of my favorite terrarium tools, purchased for me by my sister at a hardware store.  We refer to it as "the grabber" and I believe it is a tool for plumbers.  It is about 18" and contains a claw at the end that can be opened and closed using a push lever at the other end.



The grabber is a bit much for everyday terrarium maintenance or planting.  The true worth of the tool comes through when it comes to extraction situations: removing moldy or dead plants, removing fallen dead leaves, removing the miniature ceramic kitten you now decide is ruining the terrarium ambiance.  I'd link out to a place to purchase this magical tool online but alas, I know of none.

Have you ever seen a "grabber" for sale online?
