I ran across this amazing article earlier today while looking for another one about Bee's.

The Mysterious Connection between Honey Bees and Mathematics

But what makes honey bees nature’s greatest mathematicians?
So far, we have 5 reasons to believe so:


  • They have the ability to produce a geometrically impressive waxy comb.
  • The reason why they prefer hexagons over other shapes
  • They can easily solve the “Travelling Salesman Problem”
  • They can grasp the idea of zero.
  • They can solve simple and basic mathematical questions.

Hi!
Talking about bee's, they can also be learned to do other useful tasks:
