Bees have Face Recognition

Published by Scott at 7:05 pm under environment

Last week I was stung on the face by a bee. Sadly, the bee died. I am still going strong.

Had the bee survived, and had I given it some kind of sugary reward, then according to scientists at the Université de Toulouse, it would have remembered my face.

I really couldn’t say the same for the bee, I’m afraid they all look the same to me.
