Where to get a very long pipette (eye dropper)?

Does anyone know where I can pick up a very long (12-20") pipette? I'd like to use one for some target feeding, and a turkey baster is just too big for what I need.

 

This is the closest I've found:

But I'd like something even longer and thinner if possible.

 

This is another possibility, but may be overkill for what I need:

I remember making long pipettes from glass eye droppers back in biology lab by heating the center of the glass tube over a Bunsen burner and stretching it slowly.

Here is a link with a mention of doing this. http://www.microscopy-uk.org.uk/mag/indexmag.html?http://www.microscopy-uk.org.uk/mag/artnov01/tools2.html

 

A possible source of pipettes is http://www.dynamicaqua.com/pipettes.html
