I use a pair of gloves/gauntlets that I purchased from an animal supply company. They give a decent level of hand protection and also keep my forearms from getting scratched. This is kind of nice if you consider that the lizards inevitably walk through their own wastes. You may consider wearing a long sleeve shirt if you just use regular gloves to add a little sanitary protection to your arms.

>>Tongs.com has new gloves (VP-10) that are the strongest they now sell. I don't think they've listed them on the site yet (although it's been a while since I've looked); however, they do have them in their printed catalog. I'm just curious if anyone would trust these things to take the bite of an adult beaded or gila. Thanks for the replies of sand as substrate and any replies on this!
