Monkeys eat bananas the same way humans do — the trick is just in how they peel them.

Chances are, you’ve been peeling bananas from the long stem (technically the bottom, since they grow up in bunches). You’ve probably never thought about it, but there’s an easier way!

Grab the end without the stem (the “top”), pinch, and pull!

The easiest part of it all: the stem gives you a handle to hold the banana while you eat.
