Would You Let This Manatee Place Your Super Bowl Bets?

Buffett the Manatee has predicted the winner six years in a row -- will he do it again this year?

Animals can tell us a lot about the world. Some think that they can sense natural disasters long before they happen. Groundhogs tell us how much longer we have to endure the winter. Manatees tell us which team will win the Super Bowl every year.

You heard right.

Audiences at the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium have looked to Buffett and his brother, Hugh, to predict the outcome of the last six Super Bowls. They’re both highly trained (and adorable, in a blubber-and-whiskers kind of way), but Buffett seems to be the one with the football skills. Hugh has only predicted the last four winners, but Buffett is six for six. So what about this year? Well, if the Broncos win Super Bowl XLVIII, he’ll be seven for seven.
