Alternatively, you can use a small walk-in cardboard box for pick-up and transport. Please make sure that you cover the opening with your hand!

PS: You can also use this method to weigh a wiggly or nervous guinea pig without handling it!
Just weigh the tunnel or cardboard box separately afterwards or tare to zero to get the difference.
