I should have mentioned it should only be used for smaller snakes, I wouldn't go much bigger than an adult temple. You would lay the snake on the foam, then blanket the snake with the other piece, exposing just the head, it is easier to show than to explain. It keeps your hands away from having to pin the snake
and keeps the snake from having a hold on it that it doesn't want. There are different ways of doing it, tubes work as well. When the snake head comes out of the other end of the tube, you would pin it with an edge of the foam, then work the snake out while laying the foam over the area of the snake that is being exposed. And like I said, it's for smaller snake, you WOULDN'T want to try it with something large and powerful.
