If you’re a person who remembers faces, you’ve got company in the animal kingdom, the wasp! According to a University of Michigan study, scientists discovered that queen paper wasps can recognize one another’s faces. Researchers believe wasps learned to recognize faces to help keep their colonies organized. Because a wasp colony has many queens, the wasps learn to recognize different faces so they can instantly spot their own queen.
