These were made of a hard clear plastic in an inverted funnel shape with ventilation holes and removable covers. You took the bottom off, caught the creepy crawly of choice and could peel the top off the funnel to slip food down to it to keep it alive for a few days. Great for grossing out family members and bringing home big spiders to plant in someone's room.

i had a couple of these back in the 70s. i loved the plastic plant in the chamber. as if that somehow simulated a bugs natural enviromnent! the coolest thing i can remember catching was a praying mantis. poor thing didn't last more than a couple of days. kinda cruel now that i think of it. sorry bugs!
