You’ve been peeling bananas wrong

If you’ve ever watched a monkey peel a banana, you might have noticed that they do it a little differently.

Instead of holding the banana from the stem, they flip it upside down and start peeling from the bottom.

Curious we know, but they have a really good reason for it. Turns out that if you pinch the butt end of a banana, the skin comes apart and makes it very easy to pull away, particularly when you’ve got a banana whose stem is still green!

Looks like those chimps are onto something!
