The Honeybee and the Hexagon

Zack Patterson and Andy Peterson showcase a 3-minute video to introduce one of the smartest animals on the planet: bees. According to the video, scientists believe that bees comprehend the roundness of the earth, can calculate angles, and as we all know, build efficient honey storage space in hives which are in hexagonal in shape.

Watch the video below and see why bees are good geometers.

Finally, I want to leave you with this quote from The Bee Movie.

According to all known laws of aviation, there is no way that a bee should be able to fly. Its wings are too small to get its fat little body off the ground. The bee, of course, flies anyways. Because bees don’t care what humans think is impossible.
