The Punchline

What animals are predicting for the Super Bowl

Adriene Hill Jan 30, 2012

With the Super Bowl less than a week away, let’s check to see which team the animal kingdom is betting on.

There’s a sea lion in the Bronx Zoo who thinks the Giants are going to win.

A camel in New Jersey named Princess also picked the Giants.  She’s a little more reliable, picking five of the last six Super Bowl

But, as a New Jersey resident, Princess is unlikely to have a fully objective view of the game.

So on to the Georgia Aquarium, where dolphins correctly predicted a Giants-Patriots match-up — but then picked the Miami Dolphins to win the whole thing, apparently not understanding how football works.
