Eli, a Utah ape has made his decision of who will win the Super Bowl this year. Without any second thoughts, the ape quickly chose the papier-mache helmet which sported the Seahawks logo.
“He made his pick without any hesitation,” Erica Hansen of Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City said.
The ape has correctly chosen the winning team for the last six years, so this could be a bad day for Broncos fans.
Zookeepers, however, are hoping this will be the first year he is wrong since a majority of them are Broncos fans.
According to The Huffington Post, after Eli the ape made his decision, his mate Eve, and daughter Acara, joined him to play and eat the paper-mache helmets.
The more correct predictions the ape makes, the more interest in his choosing increases. Several people have been curious as to when he would finally make his choice.
According to zookeeper Hansen, “He’s better than the Vegas odd-makers.”
Let’s see if this will be yet another year to add to Eli’s streak!
