#7 North American bumblebee

The North American bumblebee, scientifically known as Bombus fraternus, is a bumblebee species native to the United States. Not only have you seen it before around the country, but you probably know it by its common name, the Southern Plains bumblebee.

The sad thing about this fuzzy insect is the fact that soon we may not be able to see any of them around. We are all aware that the bee population has been slowly decreasing in recent years, and the bumblebees are in the exact same situation.
