Honeybees look for a new home. How do they vote for one? They dance. The bees move to another place when they dance the same way.

Meerkats search for food together. They can vote for the group to search faster. To do this, they let out a special sound.

Rock ants vote for new places to live. If enough ants find the same spot, the others are taken there.

How do African wild dogs vote to hunt? By sneezing. The more the dogs sneeze, the more likely it is that they will hunt. Achoo!
