We plan to purchese six additional tarantulas to complement the four that the science center already owns. These spiders will be of a gentle nature, allowing us to study them closely without fear of death. These new spiders will be babies because we want to study tarantula growth. Some questions that we want answered are: What are the eating habits of the different tarantula species (compare/contrast)? Behavior at night compared to day? How many crickets eaten compared to size? Sex? Clean up behavior after feeding? Habits of each individual spider--for instance where one prefers to eat, sleep, stand, etc. etc.
