Cincinnati Zoo’s Fiona predicts Super Bowl winner

Fiona predicts Super Bowl winner

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The Rams or the Patriots? The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden’s beloved hippo has predicted the winner of Sunday’s big game.

Fiona picked the Rams to win the Super Bowl Llll in her second sports prediction - she was right last year with her pick of the Eagles.

The zoo posted a video of Fiona’s choice on her Fiona Show Facebook page Thursday afternoon.

“Fiona has picked a winner for Sunday’s big game! She was right last year, so we’ll see if that was just luck or if she has real selection skills,” the zoo said.

Many animals have earned reputations for accuracy in sports predictions. A German octopus named Paul, for example, had an 80 percent accuracy rate for his soccer predictions.

Fiona was born six weeks early and weighed only 29 pounds. She defeated the odds with the help of her care team, and today she’s a happy, healthy hippo, who celebrated her 2nd birthday last week.
