DALLAS -- Animals making Super Bowl "predictions" has become an annual tradition for many zoos and wildlife parks, including the Dallas Zoo and Fort Worth Zoo.
On Thursday, the Dallas Zoo's 10-month-old lion, Bahati, chose a Patriots-themed iced meat treat over one in Eagles colors. The Dallas Zoo's animal participants have correctly picked the victorious team three years in a row.
Meanwhile, Fort Worth Zoo is trying to snap a three-year losing streak which started with their 1,600-pound crocodile, Salty, who got a chance to redeem himself this year. He also chose the Patriots, gulping down a blue-colored whole chicken over a green one--which he then ate anyway.
New England and Philadelphia face off in Super Bowl LII on Sunday in Minneapolis.
