Clearly, Fiona the Hippo clearly doesn't read the Vegas odds.

Fiona, the famous hippopotamus at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden, has made her Super Bowl pick.


Keepers were nervous as she sauntered up to the Patriots' box, but Fiona the Hippo stuck with her original prediction, and began chomping on the lettuce corresponding to the Eagles' box. Buffett went with the Eagles, while Hugh chose the Pats. Animals from around the country participated in the time-honored tradition of making their picks for the Super Bowl.

The last time Salty "predicted" the Super Bowl victor, he was undone by the Seattle Seahawks' goal-line play-calling and the New England Patriots' legendary mystique three years ago.


In Waco, Texas, Cameron Park Zoo's Mukah the orangutan also picked the Pats. or at least a ball with a Pats logo. April the giraffe at the Animal Adventure Park in NY selected the lettuce above the Patriots poster.

In the video, the zoo declared the Eagles her official choice.


She has a beer named after her and her own show on Facebook.
