Researchers in Australia have discovered that honey bees have the ability to count — at least to the number four.
A scientist from the University of Queensland put five markers inside a tunnel and placed nectar in one of them, Australian Broadcasting Corporation radio reported.
Honey bees placed in the tunnel flew to the marker with the food, and would still fly to the same marker stripe when the food was removed.
I have only this to say about the intelligence of bees.
