Very neat!
It is absurd to talk of one animal being higher than another. We consider those, when the cerebral structure/intellectual faculties most developed, as highest. A bee doubtless would when the instincts were.

Aren't they the most fun creatures??? My last one was a hoot! He's move huge boulders of rubble around, making caves & such. I named him, Dozer. But the fellow I have now is very boring--I rarely see him at all.
