EDISON - Just like "Paul the Octopus" picked teams that he thought would win in the World Cup, animals are weighing in on who they think will win the Super Bowl.

"Princess the Camel" at the Popcorn Park Zoo has predicted that the Green Bay Packers will win the Super Bowl. "Princess" picked her team based on graham crackers. The camel's handlers wrote the names of the teams on their hands and then placed a cracker over them. "Princess" selected the hand marked with Green Bay.

"Jenny the Elephant" at the Dallas Zoo is also a Cheesehead! The Dallas Zoo painted two watermelons with the teams' colors, and "Jenny" got to choose her favorite. "Jenny" stomped on the Steelers melon, indicating she thinks the Packers will win.
