Worse than killer bees: beedogs

Remember killer bees? Aggressive wild bees were threatening to hybridize with mellower domesticated bees. Killer bees turned out to a minor threat that was amusingly overhyped.

Now there's a new type of hybridization, and the results are frightening. As you can see from the images below, bees have begun hybridizing with a number of dog breeds. Many more are documented on, which has over 20 pages of photos on this emerging ecological threat (via The Wisdom of the Illiterati). There are several pages on Flickr, too.

Beware of beedogs.

Reminds me of the old killer bees routine on SNL (Belushi days). There goes Joey, pulling his stinger!
