Charles Henry Turner

Laugh if you want, but if you ever noticed, some of those critters running around ya house are getting smarter, quicker, faster and adapting.

This man was the one who told us this. He was a zoologist. He received degrees from the University of Cincinnati (first black to get a Masters there) and a PH.D from university of Chicago (again a first).

In his research, Turner became the first person to prove that insects can hear and can distinguish pitch. In addition, he first discovered that cockroaches can learn by trial and error and that honeybees can see color.
