Weasels That Understand The Future

Up until now, only a few species of primates and birds have shown the ability to understand the concept of the future. But now, a type of weasel, the tayra, has shown it can plan for the future. The weasel has been observed gathering up unripe plantain bananas and hiding them away for later enjoyment when they are ripened. While plenty of critters hide food away for later, the tayra is special in that it selects bananas that are not ripe and returns when the fruit is ready.
