Many animals are social animals. They live and breed in groups.
Honeybees are also social.
Bees live in a hive, a nest filled with tiny chambers or rooms. The queen bee is the most important bee in the hive. She mates with drones (male honeybees) and produces the eggs that keep the colony going.
The rest of the female bees (worker bees) take care of the eggs and the young bees after they hatch. Bees defend their home and goo out looking for food for the hive.
Ants are social as well.
Ants live in large groups. If the ant hill is in danger, an ant can alert the others. The soldiers work to protect the community.
Social animals are able to survive in groups as long as everyone does their job.
