Animals are always doing something…they rest, sleep, eat, walk, jump, climb, chirp, and so many more. Observing behavior requires patience, a close eye, and the ability to refrain from interpreting behavior. On January 18, 2018, I received about 40 crickets to observe for my animal behavior course. From that moment on a new journey began and although there have been some bad times, there have also been times of beauty and learning. I have been watching and listening to these critters to find out what they do and to investigate reasons behind these behaviors. The story has just begun.
