    Well now I don’t feels so weird about finding several hundred small containers each with their own tiny sling oddly satisfying

    I have used the smaller ones as sling enclosures. The only downside is that there is no gentle way to open them without disturbing the spider. (Trimming the rubber around the seal helps somewhat, since it doesn't need to be air-tight anyway.)

    I have a pampho juvie in one of these right now, with properly placed airholes on top I just drop in food through one hold (which it devours), fill water dish through another hole, and done....no reason to open it.

    When I first placed my genic sling in the enclosure, he was at a size where I would be concerned about a potential escape if I made holes large enough for feeders to drop through.

    I could fill the dish through one of the holes, but when he filled the dish with substrate (which he did often), I'd have to open the enclosure to clean the dish and refill it with water.

    Overall, it is a very nice-looking container, and the plastic can be drilled. The lack of a gentle opening is my only complaint about it.

    I'm hoping Rubbermaid comes up with a nice sized, slightly deeper one. The 4.7 Cup one is a nice size for sling/small juvies.

    Their Pantry Brilliance line has some potential for aboreal enclosures.

    A deeper one would be great. I considered using my genic's former container for my Neoholothele incei sling. It had the right amount of floor space, but I wanted more depth (margin of error) for a fast, flighty species.
