Do Any Other Animals Commit Suicide?

Question

Do any other organisms commit suicide?

Answer

**Definitive**
Name: Liam, Eltham
Qualification: Fascinated by bees
Answer: Bees commit suicide - but it is more a self euthenasia thing. If they know they are injured or won't make it back to the hive they will sting themselves.


Name: John, Basingstoke
Qualification: Served on the Falklands
Answer: Geese in the Falklands commit suicide. They mate for life and if the partner dies the other will sit there and wait to die. Uckland geese only live on the Falklands - you can get fined if you kill one
