Bees Also Have Mathematical Ability!

Yes, Bees do have brains and they can understand maths as well! When a trained bee was asked to pick the lowest number out of a series, bee chose a blank image proving its understanding of the concept of zero (and yeah… it got a sugar reward in return). Though they have very small brains (as they have only fewer than 1 million neurons while humans have 86,000 million!), but they have it. The research will be used to improve AI. (Fun Fact: While human children find it difficult to to understand the concept of zero, bees understood this concept easily. This proves bees are smarter than humans as far as ‘zero concept’ is concerned.)
