The unintelligent nature of the wasp's behavior is revealed if the watching experimenter moves the food a few inches while the wasp is inside the burrow checking. On emerging, the wasp repeats the whole procedure: she carries the food to the threshold once again, goes in to look around, and emerges. She can be made to repeat this cycle of behavior upwards of forty times in succession. Intelligence – conspicuously absent in the case of Sphex - is the ability to adapt one's behavior to fit new circumstances.
