ever taken a swipe at a bee? 🐝 yes? well, watch out, it could come after you 😱
#tdil bees can recognise faces just like humans can 🙈
so yeah, if you have ever tried to kill a bee, you should probably create some kind of fortress or something 😂
it was always thought that only large brained mammals like us (well, some of us 🙈) could recognise individual people’s faces … scientists now, however, have figured out that they’ve actually been wrong.
whilst humans have billions of neurons, honeybees only have a million or so … regardless, they have a similar ability to humans when it comes to individual recognition.
this whole thing was tested by scientists through an experiment that put bees up against four pictures … each with a different person’s face. by rewarding the bees with a tasty solution, they managed to get honeybees to repeatedly fly up to a target face, even when they moved the picture around!
two days later, the honeybees could still recognise the target face! 🐝 which is really quite impressive 😏
all this just means that you should probably watch out next time you try to swat a bee 🙈
laters 😘 #tdil
