The approach to this experiment is to compare two temperatures to see which one the crickets move more in. We used a U-Mann Whitney statistical test in order to show if there is a significant difference when comparing the two temperatures. In the end, we found that we failed to reject the hypothesis which means that the crickets responded better

The main problem with this hypothesis is that animals do not need to be bipedal to display vigilance…
