heidi Feb 11 (THAINDIAN NEWS) In a story which is amusingly similar to that of ‘Paul the Octopus’ who predicted soccer games during the World Cup, Germany’s beloved cross-eyed opossum named ‘Heidi’ is going to attempt to predict the Oscar winners at this year’s show.

In an interview with RTL television in Germany, Leipzig Zoo Director Joerg Junghold revealed that Heidi will appear on the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Show’ which will air along with the Oscars on February 27. Although he did not give much away, he did explain that the show is “quite similar to Paul, it will be about tips.”

Heidi will be filmed in Germany for a few days in order to appear on the United States television show. The proceeds from the show will be given to an animal protection group.
