Cuckoo Bumblebee Rediscovered After 50 Years

Scotland has rediscovered a rare bee called the Cuckoo Bumblebee after 50 years of absence, according to treehugger.com. The bee gets it's name from something called "stranger behavior." It can neither collect pollen nor socialize in a typical hive manner. The reemergence of this bee is good news in light of colony collapse disorder, the alarming phenomena of disappearing bees around the world.
