Details About the talk

Um escaravelho-do-excremento tem um cérebro do tamanho de um grão de arroz, e mesmo assim evidencia um tremenda quantidade de inteligência quando se trata de empurrar a sua fonte de alimento — excrementos de animais — para casa. Como? Tudo se resume a uma dança. (Filmado no TEDxWitsUniversity.)
