El Paso Zoo Elephants to Make Big Game Predictions on Saturday
Who's going to win the Super Bowl game on Sunday, New England or Los Angeles? Ele-phi-know!
And I'm not placing my bet, either, until after the El Paso Zoo's prognosticating pachyderms make their piñata predictions this Saturday afternoon.
In what has become a zoo tradition, the zoo's resident Asian Elephants, Juno and Savannah, will emerge from their home one day before the big game to find two helmet shaped piñatas filled with treats set out for them — this year one will have a Patriots logo on it, the other the Rams. Whichever they go for first will be their pick.
This will be Savannah and Juno's 5th Super Bowl prediction. They're not bad at the picking game, either, although Juno has a slight edge over Savannah.
Last year Savannah chose the Patriots helmet and Juno chose the Eagles, who went on to win. The year before (2017), they both went for New England, who come from way behind to stun Atlanta.
In 2016 they were unanimous in picking Denver, the eventual winner. They agreed on Seattle in 2015 and 2014 with mixed results. The Seahawks lost to New England in 2015, and won versus Denver in 2014.
You can watch Juno make her pick at 12:15 p.m. this Saturday, February 2 at the El Paso Zoo’s elephant exhibit. Savannah gets her turn at 2:30 p.m. The event is free with zoo admission.
