Here is one for you systematics out there:  In bridge there is a play 
called a Stripe Tailed Ape double.  As a botanist, I am not qualified 
to speculate what that animal is/was.  Can anyone suggest a 
solution/organism?

Striped-Tailed Ape: A Striped-Tailed Ape Double is a tactic used in 
high-level competitive auctions. A player who is sure that the 
opponents have a slam doubles them in game (or at the five-level), 
hoping they settle for the lesser score. If they redouble, he runs 
(as a striped-tailed ape) to his side's suit, hoping the sacrifice is 
cheap enough.
