Weighing Scale Recommendations
My recommendations:

Small scale for hatchlings and mice

Large scale for yearlings and up

Weighs in tenths of grams. Perfect for sorting mice. Weigh babies in their deli cups. Uses 2 AAA batteries. It comes in various weight limits- the smaller one won't weigh heavy enough if you're weighing weanlings. The larger limit models would be okay- but you'll have a hard time fitting a 400-500 gram snake on it without doing a balancing act.

This scale has a nice clear bowl that snake will stay put in. You can (should) buy the optional AC power adaptor for $5.50 and never worry about batteries again. But if you _do_ need batteries, it takes 3 AA batteries, not obscure watch batteries. Lifetime warranty. Make SURE you save the receipt and the registration card, though.

Awesome, I assume you recommend me buying the one for babies ? Never mind, I put this in the wrong place.Im buying both, I can use the larger one for my python.

Nanci 12-06-2013 11:09 PM

Yes- that's a good one. Yu can see progress with that one.

Your "O" has dots over it! I think it's a Norwegian vowel or something. I tried to wipe my monitor!

Nanci 12-07-2013 02:09 PM

Weird. I am nothing even close to Norwegian!

Nanci, the large scale is discontinued. Any other ideas?

smigon 12-10-2013 05:56 AM

We should do a Product Review Section;

I believe that you get what you pay for, well maybe its time for this old dog to learn new tricks, read this !

I ordered this Scale and just received it and used it today already for my Corn and Python.

This may be the best $12.93 I have ever spent, OldWillKnottScales shipped fast and I received it in no time at all and It was packaged wonderfully. It came with a cushioned Pad, very easy to read instructions, batteries are included and It has a wonderful, easy to read backlit display.

This product is a must have product r everyone and I thank you Nanci for recommending this.

<<5 Stars>> out of 5

bought one, it came so fast I had not even tried to check the tracking number.... these folks are the real deal - the scale is fab, price is right and shipping wonderful ;-)

You cannot go wrong here ( just remember, wrst to the large scale, search for the black model -- silver is out of stock ).

Nancy, thank you for the recommendation, it was a very good one !

Thanks for the recommendation, Nanci: I bought both your suggested scale for young snakes and the one for adults. It's going to see a lot of use: my roommate has 3 and I've got the 2, plus an African Fat-Tailed Gecko.

Nanci 09-06-2014 12:17 PM

The small scale is great for weighing frozen mice, too.

Hearts-a-Glow 09-06-2014 01:04 PM

Hadn't even thought of that. O_o I do have 2 pack (6 count) of frozen mice in the freezer... I could just measure them all at once and Sharpie the results on the package... excellent, yes... :mrburns:
