Vulture bees in Costa Rica dining on raw chicken bait.Quinn McFrederick/UCR "Vulture bees" have evolved to eat meat instead of relying on pollen like other bees. Scientists hung raw chicken in Costa Rica and watched vulture bees fill their leg pouches and stomachs with it. They found acid-producing microbes in the bees' guts.
