You can either simplify to "Bees are not four legged animals" or expand to "Bees do not belong to the category of four legged animals".

Duo's sentence suggests that bees are not owned by four legged animals

"Do not belong" is completely wrong. The alternative "Bees are not included in four-legged animals." Is also pretty awkward, but I think grammatical.

Kaki empat? Why is the numeral second here

I think the point was to practice the use of the word "termasuk" (included). How about "included with four-legged animals"?

Why is it "kaki empat" in stead of "empat kaki"?

"Do not belong" seems to be way off here.

Would be better if it goes like "Bees are not four-legged animals/quadriceps" or something similar.

"belong to" (owned by) shoud be replace with "belong with" (part of), therefore translation should be: "Bees do not belong with four-legged animals." Alternative translation: "Bees are not part of four-legged animals.

Is the following alternate sentence in Indonesian acceptable: "Lebah tidak termasuk hewan 'berkaki' empat"?

Leave alone that those bees termasuk not animals but insects


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/joeldipops

I think different native English speakers in different contexts would have different opinions on whether insects count as animals. They certainly termasuk the taxonomical kingdom of Animalia for example.

...saya tidak termasuk native English speakers... hope this excuses me...

Well you weren't strictly wrong. Few would naturally think of bees as animals in regular speech. But taxonomically, they are.
