This was de­ter­mined by a study at Mel­bourne’s RMIT Univer­sity, where bees were given a se­ries of tests that in­volved get­ting a re­ward for pick­ing the cor­rect an­swer. The ex­per­i­ment notes that as of now, no­body knows why bees have this abil­ity, though in the past, other ex­per­i­ments have dis­cov­ered that bees can count to four.
