People always come up with crazy ways to predict the out come of sporting events. That is really on display when people try to fill out their March Madness brackets, but for other sporting events we’re treated to animals making picks usually. Remember the World Cup octopus?

A pig from the Fort Worth Zoo in Texas is predicting the Super Bowl winner.

From the Dallas Morning News:

On Thursday at the Fort Worth Zoo, Pancakes went for the Seattle Seahawks when the zoo plunked down bowls of Pancakes’ favorite treats next to footballs for each of this year’s teams. The 3-year-old porcine prognosticator weighs in at 94 pounds, and likes to eat Cheerios, grapes and zucchini.

It’s an annual tradition at the Fort Worth Zoo for an animal to make a Super Bowl pick. Four of the last five years, the zoo’s pigskin picker has correctly predicted the winner, says Kristen Garrett, the zoo’s outreach manager.
