What you can we learn from monkeys about bananas?

I read an article a few weeks ago, that if you want to keep your bananas from ripening too fast, then you should separate them from the bunch at the stem, leaving individual bananas. That is what the monkeys do!
I gave it a try and sure enough, my bananas lasted about three days longer than normal. Now I separate them and put them in the refrigerator. I have managed to have them last up to a week (with refrigeration), where they are still firm and ripe.
