(NEW YORK) — If a clairvoyant camel is to be believed, the New York Giants will take home the Super Bowl trophy next Sunday.
Princess, a 25-year-old camel who lives at the Popcorn park Zoo in Lacey township, N.J., has accurately predicted the winners of five of the past six Super Bowls, the zoo’s general manager, John Bergmann, told ABC News.
Bergmann writes the name of one team on his right palm and the other on his left palm. He then places a graham cracker in each hand. Whichever cracker Princess nibbles is the winner.
“She chose without hesitation this year,” Bergmann said.
Princess has honed her prognosticating skills by predicting the outcome of New York Giants and New York Jets games since 2006, after a local radio station contacted Bergmann about getting an animal involved in the deejay’s weekly picks pool.
“Overall, she has actually had 88 right and 51 wrong,” Bergmann said. “That’s pretty good.”
