I am having a big science project and want it to be based on T's! It needs to have data, measurable, ect.
Donts:
*No produced comparisions
*Hazardous metarials
*No surveys
*It cant be too simple

Any help will be appreciated!

Have you received permission from your teacher to even use tarantulas? Some people might consider them hazerdous materials.

In my opinion, I doubt that you would have enough time to do any serious study or data collection using tarantulas unless you were able to acquire a large number of tarantulas for some sort of comparison study.

The only thing that I think that you might be able to pull off, given your time restraints, is to maybe collect data concerning times of activity for the spiders ie-- when are they most active. Which hours during the day are they most active. Of course, those hours are probably when you are sleeping. So that might be too hard to accomplish. Maybe you could find average time it takes for a tarantula to find its prey?

Do a really quick brainstorming activity.

Honestly, it's hard to do such a thing in that time frame unless you are willing to do things you know aren't the right environment for the T's. Also, you need alot of the same species, and can you afford this?
