We know that bees are extremely clever. They have excellent communication skills, can do arithmatic, and some even use tools to protect their hives.

To this can be added something else. A video that went viral on social media shows two bees successfully opening a soda bottle! Check it out below.

Because this was on social media, the veracity of the video cannot be verified. But it is still extremely cool. The video was captured in Sao Paulo, Brazil by a worker on lunch break. If this is true, it just goes on to know that even small insects can use their tiny brains to get things done. This is certainly not surprising for bees, which according to recent research have cognitive flexibility and were shown to learn new behaviour by observation.
