Ils font parler les morts - Va Savoir #05

Series title

Va savoir

Their brains may be tiny, but they manage to find their way, communicate and even develop complex strategies to feed their communities... Social insects therefore demonstrate remarkable intelligence, which allows them to create real societies despite their brains being infinitely smaller than ours. But how can we actually measure the intelligence of an insect with which we have (almost) nothing in common? Head to the Animal Cognition Research Centre in Toulouse, where scientists have developed extraordinary methods to get into the heads of ants and bees!
