Stirling's Summer Youthie in the Hoosie Week 4, Day 2



Did you know that Bumblebees.....


* have 5 eyes and can see ultraviolet lights

* don't have ears

* make their homes in holes underground

* beat their wings up to 240 beats per second

* have hair on their body to keep them warm

* have very smelly feet!!! - they leave a scent mark like smelly footprint on the flowers they have visited to let      other bumblebees know they have already visited the flower.
