We have a bug visitor for a change!

John with some of our bees

John Ascher from the American Museum of Natural History is visiting the department this week as part of his interview process and swung by the museum this afternoon! Being a bee man, he could not resist checking out our modest collection and shared with us interesting factoids about his favourite animals. For example, did you know some bees species possess night vision? We never knew that! We look forward to sharing what we learnt from John with you at our Open House!

Amongst the many things John has published, he has compiled an interactive checklist of world bee diversity by country.  Singapore has 57 entries and you can investigate further here!

I’ll have that, please
