Here, this individual gets his friend who is probably less experienced to rehouse 20 slings one after another. This shows how OW tarantulas can move and suggests that several changes can be made. First, since these guys are flighty a larger enclosure might be best. One cotton ball could be removed and the straw simply dropped in. If a premade burrow was present, they would likely go there or else the straw could be used as a hide until the T outgrows it. Overall, the speed is similar to M balfouri and H pulchripes, but these guys are just as likely to run up instead of down and sideways which is a difference & a problematic one at that. Heck, I might well even just go with an arboreal enclosure is I were to get this species, a juvenile sized one. My versicolor sling did just fine at .75 dls in an enclosure that many said was way too large. Once I got a web, I just tong fed feeders right into it no problem. I also tend to do all my unboxing in a a plastic tub in my bathtub with an inch of cool water in the plastic tub. I place styrofoam in the middle and the new enclosure on that. If the T runs, there's amote of sorts and I haven't seen a T that likes cold wet feet. They can simply run around until they end up inside, which was basically how I did my most recent pokie unboxing, only 2 of them not 20. The video is hilarious & it's not my fault if you become hysterical for hours.
